Following an assessment of the effectiveness of the current Duck Marsh habitat it’s great to be able to announce that, in partnership with Yorkshire Water, the area is be completely redeveloped and landscaped.
The area will provide a series of spits and islets with various water depths across the 3 acre site – positioning of the features will provide the optimum viewing from the two hides. An improved system for controlling water depths to the area will also be introduced.
The project will significantly improve the area’s diversity and hopefully attract a variety of new species for the benefit of our visitors.
Work is planned to start during January 2021 and is likely to take 10 to 15 days and, unfortunately, will cause disruption to the area.
The Trust would like to thank Yorkshire Water Services for their investment in the Reserve and for their technical assistance which is greatly appreciated.
