A Slower Pace

Wednesday, January 8th 2020

The Wednesday volunteers worked at a slightly slower pace than yesterday, but achieved a great deal.  A walk around the reserve added several species to the January observation board with photographs taken as a record.  'Our' Hazel tree was covered in tiny red female flowers,

whilst the male catkins were open ready to shed their pollen.

Along Risedale Beck the catkins are still very small and closed. 

Blackthorn buds are 'in waiting'.  This is the first Blackthorn that flowers on the reserve.

Lichens come in all shapes and sizes.  This on was growing on an Ash tree.

In the afternoon more events were added to the Events Page of the web site, displays were sorted and the photos returned to their correct place and a stock check was completed.  The multitude of skills Foxglove volunteers exhibit helps the reserve to be well looked after in so many different ways. A huge thank you to everyone for all your hard work during the week.

Risedale Rangers visited the reserve and continued with the tidy up from yesterday.  A reward for all their hard work was a good feast of toasted Marshmallows!
