Winter projects underway

For the last few weeks we have been working on the complete re-development of an area of the nature centre. This will house some new species as well as providing new enclosures for our existing red squirrels and the raven.

This project has involved dismantling aviaries, removing old fencing and vegetation clearance as well as significant ground works to improve drainage and create bases for new shelters.

Whilst the work is still on-going the area is staring to take shape as the pictures below show…
