Hide construction

Friday, April 17th 2009

The construction of the hide by Dinsdale Moorland Services on the wet meadow is well underway. The boardwalk and viewing platform are also taking shape.

Construction of the hide

The old hedgelines across the middle moor are now planted up and work on the fence to protect them is nearly finished too.
3 Wheatears were spotted on the middle moor today, this is a new species to the reserve. Swallows were also seen on the moor for the first time this year.

Sticklebacks, Toad spawn, Toadpoles and Water Beetles were found by a group who were pond-dipping in the scrapes today.
