Heath Maintenance

Tuesday, August 4th 2015

Today the volunteers started the yearly task of invasive species removal from the heath. This involves pulling, digging and cutting out Silver Birch, Willow, Hawthorn and Gorse to stop them taking over the heath. It is hard but extremely valuable work to help us maintain our heathland habitat.

Our Dexter cows that normally live in the wetland decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the fence and made their way over to the far moor as the wetland gate had been left open. With the help of a couple of our volunteers we gently encouraged them back to where they belong. Please can we ask that whilst making your way around the reserve that you leave any gates as you found them.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped today; as always it is really appreciated.
