Grey Mare’s Tail Nature Reserve is a dramatic upland property - the eponymous waterfall cascades into the Moffat Water Valley below, and the hills provide a haven for rare upland plants and wildlife.  Volunteers play an important role in preserving and conserving the landscape, so we asked volunteer David Foreman to tell us about a day (or three) in the life of a GMT volunteer!
