Fence building

A bit of work in the sunshine.
On a lovely sunny day in January, a few of our members were down in the flood meadows near the Great Ouse River. The fence was in need of repair and the hedge needed trimming in places and thickening up in others. We put in 11 new fence posts and wired them up, planted numerous trees to fill in the hedges gaps and trimmed some of the hedge in place to promote a thicker stronger barrier. Many thanks to all that helped and thank especially to the Environment Agency for their continued support.

Ely Wildspace’s BIG YEAR

    The Big Year is an attempt to catalogue and record as many species, their location and their status, whether breeding, migratory or resident. We will be recording as many of the plants, insects, birds and mammals as possible as well as other taxa such as fungi, bryophytes and even slugs! Throughout the year there will be opportunity to get involved in some community events, walks and workshops. We hope to have experts available to lead these events and pass on their knowledge so you can contribute your findings.
