Last year we were lucky enough to get hold of a lot of second hand board walk sections, and thanks to a small grant we have now had some of this installed around the main Pond towards the South-Eastern end of the reserve. It is hoped that this will provide easier access to observe the abundant activity that ponds support. Educational pond-dipping should also be much easier, as the boardwalk gives a clean, stable edge to work from.
Looking North-West from the ponds, back towards Pilley Bridge:
The observant may notice that considerable pruning happened during the work party just one day after these pictures were taken!
