April 19

We headed along to the SSSI dune frontage of Archerfield Links today, assisting the course by planting up gaps in the sea buckthorn barrier on the seaward side of the green fence.

Planting sea buckthorn is certainly a first for Friends of Yellowcraig, and it is a darn site easier than removing it.

We spend a fair amount of time removing it at other parts of the site but it is a case of the right plant for the right place. The intention here being to maintain a barrier to direct access from Archerfield Links/shoreside housing onto the SSSI coast, while also screening the fence around the golf course.

Thanks to all.
