What to expect
We need you to help us clear emerging birch trees by hand, which, if left to mature, would change the nature of the habitat and reduce the attractiveness to specialist wildlife. Some of our boardwalks are coming to the end of their natural lives: rot is setting in and the structure is now beyond repair. We need to remove these boardwalks before they become unsafe. We need to make way for their replacements. Building 'bug hotels' from old boardwalk waste. We want to provide a suitable environment for frogs, toads & newts, bees, creepy crawlies, dragonflies, damselflies and small mammals to thrive. They in turn provide a food source for other birds and wildlife. As a bonus we get to recycle our boardwalk waste saving on all the hydrocarbons otherwise required to ship the waste from site. At Cwm Clydach birds like willow warbler, bullfinch and redpolls as well as butterflies like the silver-washed fritillary, will benefit from this management.
