Lakeside Transformation

Wednesday, December 10th 2014

The right hand side of the lake, formerly a rough scrubby area, has been transformed this week as Willie has worked hard to clear stumps, and level the ground.

A ramp has been dug into the side of the lake to allow access to this newly created area for water birds.

This will provide an area for ducks and geese to move out of the water to feed amongst the short grass sward which will develop. It is hoped that the new feeding area will attract a wider variety of birds onto the lake.

We are also planning to create an area along the top of this bank where visitors will be able to feed ducks and geese, with food that will be able to be purchased in the Field Centre.

This exciting project should reap rewards in the spring - we are all very excited to see how it develops!
