Lots of Help

Thursday, October 31st 2019

Another good day, dry and no rain.  The volunteers worked at a variety of tasks.  A broken piece of boardwalk needed repair so Richard set to.  He had a lot of assisstance!  Many hands make light work springs to mind!

The task was completed with the help from Emma.

Another job that required much input was the replacing of a marker post in the woodland.

There is a bank in the woodland covered in Bluebells in the spring.

It soon becomes overgrown with Brambles and grasses and so must be cut and raked. 

Whilst in the woodland a fallen tree was cut and tided into habitat piles.

Another tree required more than just a bow saw!

Once the woodland work was completed, it was back to the moor to continue to remove Gorse.  

There were many ticks against tasks completed by the end of the day.  Thank you so much for all your hard work.
