Tree planting.

TBC - watch for updates

We were on top of the world today. Not just pleased with our contribution to the planting of about 1000 trees, but with great views across to Pendle, the Dales, and the other way! We were last here in March 2017, planting a hedge. 

We were helping Forest of Bradford to add a mix of broadleaved trees (oak, birch, rowan, bird cherry, alder, willow) to Back plantation. It is a haven for birds already with kestrels and owls attracted by the vole population. There were goldcrests around, and redpoll are regular visitors. 

Whilst pleased the track wasn’t iced over , the wind was bitter and it was so cold that the battery on my mobile phone was not happy and had to hibernate.
