Lots happening this month to end the winter maintenance programme, with bird breeding season being upon us, and visitor numbers set to jump from now on in.
Friends of Yellowcraig were busy clearing and tidying as much of the recently damaged sea buckthorn along the dog walkers footpath as possible. Much achieved by them but still alot to go, nice to see lots of new growth on the sea buckthorn though so it will hopefully look much better over the coming months as it recovers.
Tidying up the remainder of the scrub piles and stumps in the dunes were also on the agenda for a couple of volunteers, who managed to get their task of burning the remainder of the scrub in record time with an impressive committment to the cause !
Equally impressive was the turnout from Friends of Yellowcraig and Archerfield Walled Garden staff who turned out to litter pick the coast between Eyebroughy and the Eil Burn. Sorry to those that had to bail before benefiting from the fantastic cake based calorie replacement session courtesy of the Walled Garden afterwards : ) .
Thanks also to North Berwick West Links Golf Course, Archerfield Links Golf Course, and the Renaissance Golf Club for uplifting their litter back from the coast, and also to the North Berwick Amenity Services staff for uplifting it up from there.
East Lothian Path Wardens have also recently been in the area improving the surface of the John Muir Way along side North Berwick West Links Golf Course, with the work to complete this section set to take place within the next few weeks.
Boundary wall repair is on the cards for the April task so hope to see some of you there.
