Desilting works on ditches & ponds
The Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust had a site with a large population of great crested newts and wanted to improve the wetland habitat for them. JPR Environmental undertook some pond clearance for the trust. In addition to desilting a number of ponds and ditches, we also created a new pond, lined with bentonite liner, for the newts.
The project was funded by Higher Level Stewardship funds (HLS).
