Walked up to Warland reservoir yesterday and as I got to the end of Warland res, where it almost joins Lighthazzles res, there were dozens of white bags there –

I’m guessing that this must be the repository for the loads of heather shoots that are planned to be dropped on the surrounding moors from helicopters in the hope that they will take root and protect the eroding peat.

 The planned ‘seeding’ is due to take place January, February and March but I haven’t heard any helicopters over there yet.
