In June, the LIFE in Common Land project team resumed field visits in Serra do Xistral, after three months of confinement due to the State of Alert decreed by the Government of Spain in response to the global Covid-19 pandemic.
The objective of these first visits was to study the candidate areas where the conservation demonstration actions will be developed in the A Balsa Neighborhood Common Hand Mountains in the municipality of Muras and Laxa Moura in Xove.
In A Balsa's mountain, the conditions and solutions in the action zone of elimination of pine grove to restore a bog blanket were analyzed. The technical staff of the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela and the Universidad de Coruña visited this area together with the president of A Balsa's common land and one of the contractors who was asked for a budget.
In Laxa Moura mountain of Xove, the different actions were studied, the drinking fountains were checked and the contractors of the different works were explained what is going to be done, such as the cleaning of the well that supplies water, the construction of exit devices for amphibians and the stone covering of the drinking fountains to integrate them in the landscape. Accompanied by several members of Laxa of Moura common land, we also visited an area of eucalyptus to remove it and restore the bog blanket and develop another action of recovery of degraded wet heath.
The visits to these areas were also used to mark the exact location of the information panels that the LIFE in Common Land project is going to install in Serra do Xistral.
