Moorland management



Talking of Red Grouse the management of the moor filled the dale with smoke in the late afternoon on Saturday and smoke from 3 or 4 heather burning fires was all around in the sky.

Anything at Scaling Dam? Both Long-tailed Ducks showed nicely.

It was the same scene here with fires going over all the moors above Fly Flatts and above Ilkley at the weekend.Nice to see the snowdrops. Our crocus and daffodil bulbs are now showing through unless the snow wipes them out.BS
