Volunteers haymaking

Wednesday, November 4th 2009

Even though it's a bit late for haymaking, we had one of our meadows cut yesterday.

Cutting the meadows

Today our volunteers spent the best part of the day raking off the cut grass into a big haystack and weeding the tree tubes which were there.

The Dales School pupils

The Dales School were here and pulled birch and gorse on the heathland.

Around 10 Fieldfare were seen feeding at the stone pile at lunchtime.
