Mid-Winter Pond Dipping!

On a cold morning at the start of February, committee members Lieve Reckers and Nigel Duncan completed the annual maintenance task of removing excess vegetation from the pond. If this wasn’t done regularly, the reeds and grasses would eventually take over, causing the pond to turn into mud and back into a normal part of the woodland. Lieve’s waders and thick gloves resulted in the excess vegetation being put on the side of the pond, allowing valuable water and insects to fall back into the water.
