Task Force activated on Pond tidy up

Members of the Friends of Lancing Ring got to work around the Dew pond today, clearing litter, trimming Bramble and invading Hawthorn  and Ash tree seedlings which are beginning to colonise  the banks of the pond.
Several sticks of various sizes have found their way into the mud, some pieces were removed but as rotten wood can be beneficial to burrowing aquatic animals, a few bits were left.

DewpondThe weeks of drought have all but evaporated the water in the pond but mercifully the recent days rainfall has replenished it a little.

One of our volunteers was Mark Emery who runs a bushcraft and countryside skills service providing information and guidance to individuals, small groups and businesses. He can be contacted via this link or from the side links panel
