Clearing net rides 30 and 31

Tuesday, March 6th 2018

The objective of today's volunteer task was to clear the brash from net rides 30 and 31, and transport it down to the bullet catcher to be burnt.

We were joined by the Dales School just before lunch, who enjoyed helping us fill a trailer load and also helped cut the brash to length ready for the next stage.

Although we really went for it, with everyone putting in a shift and a half, we didn't quite manage to clear all of the two rides of brash. However we did manage to get rid of a whole pile of wood down at the bullet catcher, and even started tidying up ready for firewood collections later in the week.

It's likely that Saturday's Worky Day will include removing the last lot of brash from net ride 30, whilst simultaneously cutting two more nearby net rides.

Do you think that this is the correct time of year to be cutting all this habitat back, there is going to be nothing left for the birds to nest in ! Is it supposed to be a nature reserve ?
