Interviews and Big Projects

Monday, January 21st 2019

Following a visit from BFBS Catterick (British Services Broadcasting Service) last Tuesday, the radio feature can be found on Twitter!

While the Reserve Managers have been busy with a large workshop tidy up project, our two other big projects happening on the reserve are well under way.

The work on the wetland started just under a week ago, and the banks are being rebuilt first to provide support for the large diggers to be able to get in and move around. This means shifting an impressive quantity of clay around, thank goodness for big machines and dry weather so far!

The level of the ponds has been dropped by about half a foot to allow for easier access to the banks, but it will soon be back up to normal once the work is completed and the water is let back in through the sluice. 

The ponies have been enjoying watching the diggers at work from afar!

Meanwhile work in the connifer woodland is nearing completion, and it's fantastic to see the light coming through and reaching the forest floor. We are looking forward to seeing what grows up in the Spring!
