Here are some photos of our day of single-species plant monitoring in early July, when the plants and sun shone. Thanks to Abbie for the photos.
It was a very productive group on Sunday as we finished off the twine fencing around the bird nesting area, cleared all the rubbish from the beach and Gullane Point and piled up a mass of planks ready for uplift. And we saw plenty of wildlife too, including a nice female marsh harrier. Thanks to Liz for the photos.
Thanks to all you came along to clear sea buckthorn last Sunday. It was a very successful day with a very successful fire. Thanks to Jane for the photos.
Thanks to everyone who came to take out sea buckthorn last Wednesday, the catering seemed to go well, particularly my surprise cakes! Thanks to Abbie of the photos.
Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to digging out and chop down sea buckthorn up on Gullane Hill. Well done to the pyromaniacs who successfully got the fire burning well. Thanks to MA for the photo.
A big thank you to the 23 folk who managed to clear rubbish from all of the beach and most of the saltmarsh yesterday. A tremendous effort! We also carried out two surveys, recording all the litter we picked up. These data will be fed into the national recording scheme run by the Marine Conservation Society to build up a picture of how much rubbish is washing up on our beaches nationally. Thanks to Abbie for the photos.
Thanks to the 22 folk who came along for the first buckthorn bashing session of the year. We cleared a great amount and had a wonderful fire into the bargain. Next one on Sunday 15th.
Thanks to everyone who came along to put the electric fence up on Wednesday. We put up about 7 kilometres of wire! Thanks Abbie for the photos.
Thanks to all who came out on Saturday to take out sea buckthorn plants from the species-rich grassland, finish off some fencing work and do a bit more path surfacing work. Thanks Bruce for the photos.
