Team Tuesday

Tuesday, June 17th 2014

Tuesday is always a busy day on the reserve with volunteers out working to improve and maintain the fabulous habitats found here. Today was no exception with several groups working around the reserve, most people found themselves weeding around the young saplings in the ancient hedgeline. This is important work to ensure these young plants do not become choked by the fast growing grasses; once mature the hedgeline will act as a wildlife corridor between the training area and the reserve.

All the signage on gates across the moorland was refreshed by volunteers making sure the area is ready for the livestock when they are delivered tomorrow. Ken and Eddie have also been strimming along many of the paths making sure they are kept clear for visitors.

As well as all of this maintenance work volunteers have completed the weekly butterfly survey, spotting the first Meadow Brown of the season, flower surveys and working on the new displays for in the Field Centre!

1st Meadow Brown of the Summer!

Thank you everyone for your hard work today, it all really makes a difference to how the reserve looks and we are all very grateful for the effort you put in!
