The work completed this season( September to February) has taken in all of The Mark’s hill area we have cut and cleared the orchid meadow and rough meadow and opened up around the new pond off of Gladstone Rd. All of the rides have been cut back and a new path has been cut across the plot that Nore View stood in. Three new seats have been made to replace the old. All of the edges of Woodgrange and Northcoate have been cleared and some potentially dangerous dead ashes removed. The bridleway parallel to the Staineway and the paths to the North of the reserve have been widened.
Recent sitings of fungi include the Green Elf Cup, which is fairly common on dead wood in the reserve, and the Scarlet Elf Cup which is a recent coloniser and was only found for the first time a few years ago.
