Team Tuesday

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

The Tuesday team of volunteers were hard at work improving some of the many habitats found here on the reserve.  One of the jobs for the day was clearing invasive Bracken from around a pond.  Bracken creates a dense shade inhibiting the growth of plants underneath.  Bracken can spread quickly, growing from rhizomes underground; in only a short time this plant is able to dominate very large areas.

This annual job helps to keep the growth in check and over the years reduces Bracken cover allowing a richer diversity of ground flora to develop.

Volunteers also worked hard today weeding gorse and willow from the heathland habitat as well as dismantling old boardwalk sections.  The wood from which will soon be put to good use replacing some of the old bridges around the site.

Thank you all again for you continued hard work helping us to maintain Foxglove for all to enjoy!
