Glades

Tuesday, December 3rd 2013

Volunteers were kept busy today clearing Gorse and Silver Birch saplings from an overgrown glade near to the heathland.

Many different types of fungi were seen as we worked through the day including some beautiful displays of Candle Snuff.  It is black at the base and white at the tips; just like a snuffed candle wick.  This is quite a strong and rubbery fungus which will bend easily without breaking.

In the afternoon work continued opposite the heathland.  Several Juniper and Yew trees were uncovered as the Gorse was cut out.

These areas are looking fantastic and it will be exciting to see which flowers are in bloom here in the spring.  Thank you to everyone today for you hard work!
