Wildlife attraction improved for those at Lake District hotels
A team of volunteers have been praised for their work at Muncaster Castle, which houses a wildlife attraction popular with those at hotels in the Lake District.
It is a hotspot for wildlife, so the group have installed a new raised boardwalk in the hope of attracting yet more species to the area.
National park ranger Phil Clague commented: "It was such a wet day I wouldn’t have blamed anyone for giving up, but that’s not the way our volunteers do things - they simply rose to the extra challenge."
He added that national park volunteers really enjoy getting involved in this sort of project.
Earlier this month, the Lake District National Park Authority launched its search for volunteers to help improve footpaths in the area, which have been worn away over the years.
Among their duties is to sweep back loose gravel and report back any additional damage.
