Wetland Work

Friday, February 17th 2023

The ponds on the Wetland are an important habitat for a variety of birds, amphibians and invertebrates. Recently, one of the banks between two ponds has started to fail with water seeping over the top and soil slumping into the next pond. Our keen Duke of Edinburgh volunteer has been marking out the area in need of some repairs. 

Thank you for all your hard work this week!

A group from the Personnel Recovery Centre in Catterick Garrison have moved large amounts of soil in a huge effort to build up the bank and maintain the ponds. Definitely a 'Green Gym' day! 

Meanwhile, regular volunteers have continued working along the banks of the beck. The full length has now been cleared and several Kingfisher perches installed. 

The beck looks amazing, fingers crossed for Kingfishers! 

Thank you to everyone for your hard work.
