Today has been mainly spent checking the reserve for Storm Desmond damage. About 8 large trees had come to grief over the weekend, including this Scots Pine that had fallen over the path near the small hide in the conifer woodland. This plantation of conifers acts as a shelter belt as it bears the brunt of the high winds that come in over the moor and helps to protect the rest of the reserve.
We have a message from Glennis Walton who sent in the results of our quiz,”Many thanks once again to all those who supported us by buying the most recent quiz, and sent in their results. We gather from the feedback that many people found it harder than usual as they were less familiar with the ‘Natural Features’ vocabulary, but hope you enjoyed the challenge anyway”.
The winner was Mike Fenwick with 35. Ann Brack was second with 31, and The Coopers third with 30. Others who were very close runners up were Anne and Mike Bacon with 29, Frank and Carole Broughton with 28 and Trish and John Illingworth with 22. We have posted the results of all those who sent in their answers as they had put so much effort into trying to solve the clues. Again, thank you.
The answers were:
Many thanks to Pat who compiles the quizzes for us. She has already prepared the next one for in time for our Christmas festivities, and it will be available shortly at Foxglove Covert.
