Friday 24th July: Baildon Moor

View down the work siteView down the work siteThis was our second work day to clear bracken on Baildon Moor this year. We concentrated our efforts on the area the we originally worked on 9 years ago - to the left hand side as you look down the hill over the work site. The photo shows the clear difference the control regime has made. There are still fronds growing where we have worked but a marked difference to the areas not managed. 

The ling was just coming into flower and there were plenty of bees drinking from the flowers. The cross-leaved heath is going over now. We heard a grouse very near by and we couldn't remember hearing one in this area before.

See more photos here, including the ling. Can you spot the bees?
