The Spice of Life!

Tuesday, September 18th 2012

A wide variety of interesting jobs were completed by the Tuesday team! Tasks varied from re-organising a timber store, meeting and greeting visitors, woodland management and checking pipeways to butterfly recording and repairing Water Vole damage!

Vole Hole Repair

The wetland is managed so that the water flows across seven different levels and then back into the reserve. The design is such that if there is a lot of rain then any excess water will flow to Risedale Beck and prevent flooding. However, the Water Voles keep on creating holes through one of the bunds and re-directing all of the water away from the site! Hopefully, they will now be persuaded to dig elsewhere and allow the water levels to return to their correct heights.

Thank you to all of the Foxglove volunteers for your continued support.
