Tree Planting continues, with re-enforcements from Stirling!

On Wednesday we continued a section of tree planting that we were unable to complete last week.  Our regular Wednesday volunteers were joined by a few extra local volunteers that had already assisted the week before, as well as Iain Jamieson from the SNH Stirling office.  Iain knows Loch Leven well, having covered my job whilst I was away in 2010.  He brought with him Andras Sandor, a Hungarian photography enthusiast who has been living in Scotland for 7 years, and volunteering with the Stirling NNRs recently, particularly at Flander’s Moss.  I asked Andras while we were out if he could send me a couple of photos to share on the blog, and he has very kindly sent through the following images, which I think demonstrate very well how hard NNR staff work (there were lots of hard working volunteers too, believe me!):
