A Flurry of Snow and Activity

Friday, January 13th 2017

The drive up the track this morning was …… interesting. The thin layer of snow had me wishing that my little van was a 4 x 4. The only tracks before me were Roe Deer, ...rabbit and pheasant…. I will leave you to work out which is which!

The wind overnight had us concerned that there may be the odd tree/branch down, so the first job was to walk the conifer perimeter to see if any had been wind blown.

The snow on the tree trunks indicated that the snow had been blown in from the West, and ....

 ...it was slowly decreasing as the morning went on. Views of the reserve were spectacular as I made my way around ticking off various jobs like checking the Exmoor Ponies.

and the motion sensor camera on Risedale Beck, the snow hiding any otter spraints.

A quick look at the Wetland Bank, which, even if I say so myself, looks excellent. All our efforts certainly appear to have paid off.

Thank you to Peter for his consistent hard effort today…. he will sleep well tonight!
