Pond update.

Horsington Pond, a few weeks ago

Charles James, the brains behind the pond, reports:

The pond is near completion, we await the wildlife information board from the suppliers then all is done.

I spotted this morning a pair of fledgling Grey Wagtails on the side of the pond, it would appear that they have nested around the pond.

The RSPB put the Grey Wagtail at Red status, which means they have the highest conservation priority (species needing urgent action).

Species receiving Red status are either globally threatened or have shown a 50% decline in UK breeding population over the last 25 years so it is encouraging to see them breeding here.

It was also pleasing to see our local children playing in the dipping pond over the weekend.
