Habitat Improvements

Friday, January 28th 2011

Mike and Tony were here all day yesterday and did work on the moorland.  First they took out a redundant little bridge and then carried on with Gorse clearance.

Mike (above) and Tony (below) have beeen making a real difference with their mid-week visits.  If any of you out there think that you would also like to be involved helping to maintain Foxglove, please do get in touch with us.  We welcome everybody, regardless of experience, as there are always new things to learn and do.

Meanwhile the Askham Bryan students moved some felled Alder to the new classroom and built a log wall.

This will eventually make a grand habitat for small creatures such as toads, newts, spiders, woodlice and plenty other creepy crawlies. 

At the lake another board was removed from the weir to lower the water level in readiness for the work in March.
