New wildlife pond
A recently completed wildlife pond high above Ullswater. With funding from local charity Another Way, we created this pond to compliment 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.
