A safe and sustainable pond island at Forty Hall has been created to offer shelter and a place to nest for the many wild fowl which will visit over the spring. The new island, by Friends of Forty Hall Park, is supported by erosion-resistant rock rolls, and planted with shrubs to support the lake’s eco-system and to provide safe areas for waterfowl and wading birds, as well as insects and other wildlife.
Meanwhile at Bush Hill Park, the friends group has erected a living willow structure, the latest instalment in the park’s thriving community wildlife garden, thanks to funding from the council.
The volunteer group hopes the wildlife garden will become a destination for Bush Hill Park’s users, fulfilling its vision of making it an area for natural play, wildlife discovery, education and relaxation.
