Burning brash in the woodland

Wednesday, October 10th 2018

Before I talk about brash burning in the conifer woodland I'm going to mention yesterday's visit to the Reserve by the Harrogate U3A Naturalist Group.

The morning of the group's visit was led by our very own Christine Meek, who took the group around the Reserve hunting for fungi, for which they were very much rewarded!

Here are just some of the fungi found by the group on their mid-morning walk about, some others are yet to be ID'd by our Monitoring & Surveying Volunteers as we speak.

Today we have been working with the Risedale Rangers in the conifer woodland over the other side of Risedale Beck.

This is a continuation of previous work carried out with the group, only today we started to burn the brash collected over the past month.
