Friday, March 5th 2010

The newly established Wetland was looking beautiful in the bright sunshine today and although some pools are still iced over there were definite signs of Water Vole activity. This is especially good news after such severe winter weather.

Students from Askham Bryan were back today and continued to work on the Hazel coppice and dead hedge.

This tiny cup fungus was discovered on top of one of the mink rafts on Risedale Beck. These fruiting bodies were only 5mm in diameter (quarter of an inch in old money)!
