One Week On

Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

Volunteers were again hard at work putting right all the storm damage from last week's flood.  Many people have volunteered their time since the floods hit the moorland, red route and Risedale Beck; thanks to their hard work all the paths around the reserve are now repaired!

Other jobs that were completed at Foxglove today were rebuilding dams on the voley ponds, and weeding out the ancient hedge lines on the moorland - thank you to everyone for lending a hand!

Conifer Mazegill

Fungi is appearing all over the site; conditions this autumn are perfect!  Conifer Mazegill is a dark-brown, thin, fan-shaped bracket often found clustered on dead wood of conifers and occasionally on broadleaf trees, and causes an intensive brown rot.  It is the maze-like arrangement of pores on the underside of the bracket that gives this fungus its name.
