Looking Forward

Sunday, December 29th 2019

 At the beginning of the year some of the conifers in a block along Risedale Beck were felled.  During the year, even though there were some very dry times, the vegetation began to show.  There were ferns and leaves of Foxglove, Wood Sorrel and Primrose.  It is our intention that we keep a photographic record of this area as it develops during the year.  The first photographs have been taken, a little early admittedly, for 2020.

We will not just be looking at the vegetation but also any invertebrates that arrive.  The log piles will be checked too.  Someone is going to have to take some walks up and down the hill!

The Bluebells at the Stone Circle showed themselves well into the circle last year and we wait to see how far they have spread this coming spring.

Spigot Mere attracted new species during the year and it will be interesting to see if they return and if further new visitors arrive.
