As MacDuff missed out on yesterday's blog, here he is in the mist this morning.

He was watching the volunteers burning Gorse on the middle moor. The cattle are always curious and love to stand close to the fire as demonstrated by McGregor below!

Plenty of wildlife has been spotted whilst working on the moor. Today Megan noticed a 7-Spot Ladybird and a beautiful spider's web. Here is Colin rescuing a Toad that was too close to the bonfire! Several Fieldfares and Snipe have also been seen up on the moor this week.

Meanwhile, back at base the team from Balfour Beatty were busy re-surfacing the area around the new workshop.
