Quiz Results

Monday, December 7th 2015

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:

1.Moraine
2.Sea
3.Geyser
4.Jungle
5.Stalagmite
6.Gorge
7.Desert
8.Sky
9.Cave
10.Basalt
11.Mesa
12.Pumice
13.Sky
14.Ocean

I believe you have made a mistake with the answers as you have Sky down twice it can not be the answer to question 8 as that is desert the missing answer is to question 6 ” It doesn’t matter what the trick surrounds” the answer is in 6 letters.
