Conservation projects

Attwells pond work party July 2016 (11)

We now have funding for two projects, each on separate sites that we own.

One is the installation of four sluices on the ends of ditches on the site. The sluices will enable us to better control the water levels in ditches and the flooding in the fields as well as keeping the ground wetter.

The other is to create a scrape/splash this will be at the land which we recently purchased. An area of about 3000 square metres adjacent to a 10 acre pond will be reduced down so it remains wet and/or flooded depending on the time of year.

Both projects will benefit all wildlife but in particular waders, providing a feeding habitat as well as a high tide roost and hopefully a breeding place in the future.

These projects have to  be completed by March 2018 so we will be posting progress as it happens.
