First Day

Wednesday, January 15th 2014

Hello, it's Lizzie here. I've just spent my first day on the reserve, its been a good day getting to know some of the volunteers and finding my way around the reserve - although don't test me on names or how to get from a to b just yet!

We started the morning out on the scrapes making a few adjustments to the new steps that were put in a couple of weeks ago. After that we moved on to clear out the drainage pipes leading to the Bullet Catcher and across Risedale Beck.

After a delicious lunch (thank you ladies) we headed back down to Risedale Beck to continue working on the Hazel coppice along the south bank. It is starting to look really good and we should hopefully see some lovely wild flowers there in the spring and summer.

Thank you everyone for the very warm welcome.
