The Wetlands work planned for this week was postponed due to water levels and potential for flooding in the wetlands.
We would like to try and get the 3 days work in before Spring but that window is closely rapidly, in advance of our meeting next week does anyone have any thoughts on when we cannot do the work from due to wildlife, ground nesting birds in the area described below?
The work will be:
- Tree roots removal on the southern edge of pond 1 (large pond) and west side of pond 4 (the one with all the trees at the side of it) - these areas are right next to eachother to reduce disturbance to the rest of the Wetlands and are also near the summer walk between the ponds and only just across the main path from the plant material collection area.
- Vegetation removal of boundary on the southern edge of pond 1 - again same area as above.
Therefore, the disturbance will be approx. 20m into the Wetlands along the summer path between the ponds from the permissive path, and some disturbance to the path (that we will clean up to make access possible straight after the works along the permissive path). As it is a much smaller area than the works last year I am hopeful that the disturbance will not impact on the wider area and ecosystem.
Your thoughts very welcome please.
