A very muddy experience for Science Park company Citrix

Pond clearance was the task for willing volunteers from the Science Park company Citrix. The pond seemed extra muddy on the day as we pulled reeds up and removed rubbish but the volunteers rose to the challenge. Clearing at least a third of the vegetation is an essential part of pond management and this was triumphantly achieved!

New woodland walk at Stourbridge Common

Volunteers from a local company helped to create a new woodland walk in the tree line at Stourbridge Common. This area is a unique habitat as it contains an extensive ephemeral pond which attracts many associated species and makes this a very interesting site especially in the spring and early summer for investigation and observation.

Otter holts installed on riverside reserves

To help support the steady growth in numbers of otters on our rivers, otter holts were installed on two of our riverside reserves with the help of our Saturday volunteer group. The holts were sited in secluded, quiet bankside locations and will hopefully provide daytime refuge for these amazing animals as they navigate our waterways.
