Getting Stuck In

Monday, August 16th 2021

The bridge on the Red Route is open again and work has begun on clearing some of the excess reeds from below it; pulling them out by the roots was the best option to prevent them from re -growing.

There were a few close shaves when people almost lost their balance as the roots finally gave in to the pressure and mud splashed everywhere!

The reeds were so thick that it was difficult to know where to begin.

After a couple of hours, a small clearing had been created, this will help the flow of water into the lake and make a corridor for birds such as the Kingfisher.

The team then moved onto the wetland to carry out some habitat work there. There was less silt but the water was deeper which led to different problems!

Special thanks to all of the volunteers who have worked on the bridge and in the ponds, it will benefit both the wildlife and the visitors who come to enjoy it.
