The Environment Agency have cleared the becks, (still more to do although not as invasive further along the Triangle), I know it looks rather invasive but it has been left many years and now for flood prevention in York the directive is that becks be maintained. They will be maintained each year but only gently in future and the time of year is crucial for the protection of wildlife. Be assured that Friends of Hob Moor and the CYC will monitor this closely. One tree had to be cut following advice from tree preservation. As you will see the chippings were spread at the entrance to the Moor at Holly Bank Grove to help combat the mud that frequently collects there. As I have walked around the beck areas, I have really noticed the activity of birds that seem quite happy and busy at this time of year, so I am not unduly concerned.
