Pond and scrub management at Witton Park, Blackburn (part one) 

Sat 18 Oct 2014 - Sat 18 Oct 2014 


In December 2008 ARGSL created six new ponds in a secluded part of Witton Park, Blackburn. Since then the ponds and their surroundings have become an excellent habitat for amphibians, supporting common frogs, common toads and smooth and palmate newts. The area has been monitored and managed by ARGSL over the last 6 years, demonstrating a long term commitment to projects that the group is involved in.  This winter will be a good time to tackle some important habitat management work to maintain the area’s value for amphibians, so if you’re able to help out you’ll be very welcome!
