Moor Fun on the Reserve

Friday, May 10th 2013

Rushes have taken advantage of the heavy rainfall of recent months and begun to invade many of the habitats where they are not welcome. One such place is the moorland and the scale of the problem can be seen below. 

Juncus Attack

This section was strimmed by Adam to give the smaller wildflowers a chance to grow.

Juncus Removal

Once the cuttings were raked into heaps the area looked a lot better. With some sunshine this patch should be transformed into a colourful meadow where the school children will be able to sweep net for invertebrates.

Middle Moor

Women in Middleham are the latest organised group to enjoy a visit to Foxglove. Elizabeth took the group members on a guided walk along Risedale Beck to see what was out and about.Women In Middleham

Along with butterflies on the wing this Bluebell was a highlight of the tour. The first of many!
