Pond Clearance

Friday, September 5th 2014

Yesterday with the amazing assistance of our Thursday volunteers we started the task of clearing some of the vegetation from the ponds on the wetland. We are removing it to create some open water. This will improve the habitat for wetland birds and as an extra bonus improve the views from the hide.

We are carefully selecting the ponds and the amount of vegetation to remove to create a balance in this diverse habitat allowing our bird, Water Vole, Pond Snail, newt, dragonfly and assorted other inhabitants to thrive.

A big thank you to our volunteers this was a brilliant start to this ongoing task.
