Raking and Trees to Go!

Tuesday, November 1st 2016

It was a another beautiful day on the reserve which always makes the day easier for all with the jobs we had on for the Tuesday volunteers.

 I feel I am repeating myself when I mention the value of these folk who constantly help us with the management of the reserve, but at the same time we would not be able to keep to what we consider a high standard without them. Here are some of the volunteers on the moorland raking off bracken and gorse cuttings(above), and beyond Plovers Pool ( below ).

We had Goose Moor Nature Reserve attend the site who were taking Birch and Willow to plant on their new reserve,

also oak saplings like the one below kindly donated by Howard and Rachel Walker.

Sadly it was the final day of the Botanical Fungi Art Class held by Karen Innes with some fantastic results.

This one was of Elfin Saddle using the Shaggy Inkcap ink instead of water colour.

Thank you to Karen and the volunteers that attended today.
