Pond 2018

The pond survived the drought thanks to the very high rainfall levels at the start of 2018, but it sank to an all-time low and in early Spring 2019 it has a long way to go before it is full.

It was a vital asset to wildlife in the summer heat, including adult and young grass snakes which enjoyed swimming in order to cool down.

We are pleased that the Southern Marsh orchid put in another appearance.
