New Wildlife Pond, Dockray
A recently completed wildlife pond high above Ullswater. With funding from local charity Another Way, we created this pond to complement an existing wood on the site. The site is already a haven for small birds and amphibians, but the completion of the pond will now also benefit Dragonflies, Swallows, Ducks and other ground-nesting birds.
The existing species-rich grasses that were present have been saved and re-used on this project to speed up recovery. This picture was taken when the project had only been completed for 4 months.
