Boardwalk to the wilderness

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

A new boardwalk is paving the way to one of north-east Fife’s wildlife hotspots, thanks to the hard work of eco-friendly volunteers.
The improved access has been built on Earlshall Muir, an area just south of Tentsmuir Forest which is important for birds, plants and insects.
In a special event organised by Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, 17 volunteers from the Trust and Cupar’s Elmwood College helped the Trust’s maintenance team lay 50 metres of the new walkway and clear away a lot of overhanging vegetation.

The work – carried out thanks to Scottish Natural Heritage CSV Action Earth grant – gives people much easier access to this rich wilderness and helps protect breeding colonies of birds in the Eden Estuary Local Nature Reserve.

“A good day was had despite sub-zero temperatures and driving rain,” said Fife Coast and Countryside Trust Ranger Ranald Strachan.
“Some great work was done to assist both walkers and wildlife – setting a new section of boardwalk to avoid the sensitive wader breeding site and improving the Fife Coastal path to boot.
“Everyone can get involved in conserving biodiversity. It is a shared resource and a shared responsibility. From the smallest individual action to a national campaign, every contribution helps!”

Anyone keen to learn new skills and improve their local environment is encouraged to contact Trust Volunteer Co-ordinator Caroline Collie at Caroline.Collie@fifecountryside.co.uk, telephone 01592 656089.
