Our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation More details

Team Tuesday

Tuesday, April 22nd 2014

Volunteers have spent a rather wet day finishing off some jobs around the reserve. All of the trees planted over the last few years have been checked and the tubes have been weeded out. Only a few of the trees planted have not survived; with the donation of new trees from the A1 project we have been able to replace these.

With fresh Spring growth showing, Foxglove has shed its winter coat and is looking great, even in the heavy rain today! The benefit of the winter work programme is clear to see as you walk along the footpaths. The Hazel coppice along Risedale Beck where volunteers worked hard earlier this year is now covered in a carpet of wildflowers. Bluebells are now in bloom, mixed in with Primrose, Barren Strawberry and Wood Anemone.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out over the winter, make sure you take some time to come and enjoy the fruits of your labour!
