Moorland Management

Tuesday, August 26th 2014

Today with a lot of help from the volunteers we finally finished the clearance of the middle moor wildflower meadow. Any cuttings that couldn’t be turned into useful hay or silage by the farmer were raked up and removed from the site.


The farmer then came to collect the silage that they had baled and wrapped last week. A big thank you to everyone who played their part in this task, the meadow is now looking very well groomed and should flourish in the next growing season.


This afternoon we moved on to the enjoyable task of pulling Thistles on the moor. Although this is a tough job with the spikey Thistles penetrating even the sturdiest of gloves the volunteers attacked the task with their usual vigour and have made a really noticeable difference. So once again a big thank you for all your hard work today!
