By the Lake

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

Work started yesterday on the four shallow terraced pools at the head of the lake. The digger was in early and worked hard all day nearly completing the first of these.

Unfortunately the digger broke down this morning; the parts needed are on their way and we have been promised it will be back up and running tomorrow.

Volunteers spent part of the day collecting and moving old sleepers which will act as dams at the mouth of each pool. The water will cascade over these before flowing down a short rocky stream into the next pool. The habitat created here will be perfect for birds such as Dippers and Grey Wagtails, and will hopefully attract more waders onto the reserve.
