YWT Calley Heath - 13 February 2013

Third YWT site of the day, this heath lies next to the busy A1079 Hull - York road. It is hazardous to access as you have to pull on to some hardstanding next to the gate immediately next to the Hull road. Great care is needed! The site was quite wet and we had a quick walk round, mainly to check on the Belted Galloway cattle on site. They are being used to keep a check on the rank grass growing on site and one of the cows has recently had a calf. And very sweet it was too! We christened it Thunderbolt due to the lighting flash-shaped white belt round its flank. Not much wildlife noted apart from a few Siskins flying about.
