Monday 28th August 2018 – Part 3

Horswell

The photo above shows how fantastic Horswell Ditch, which was deepened and widened in September 2017, is looking now, compared to how barren it looked 12 months ago (below). Despite the exceptionally dry summer, it held water throughout and must have helped to maintain the water table in that part of the reserve. Ten species of dragonfly have been observed and common frogs also bred. Final profiling and scalloping of the northern bank is due to take place next month.Horswell 2017
