Waymarkers and hurdles

Wednesday, April 14th 2010

The work carried out by the Foxglove volunteers is so varied and changes with the seasons. Jobs done by the group of twelve volunteers today included re-siting waymarker posts along the new sections of the red trail.

This route now avoids the net rides and access to these will be for habitat management and bird ringing only from now on. It is important that all visitors stick to the waymarked paths.

Many other tasks were completed. A new dam was built in the Scrapes area, a large hopper was moved and three sacks of litter (washed down from the training area) were removed from Risedale Beck.

Meanwhile, Heather and Chris built some wattle panels from the coppiced Hazel stools to block off the old paths. Thank you to all involved, your time and effort is greatly appreciated.
