Last week Jenny and I were joined by two Trustees, Bernard and Colin, and some amazing volunteers to install some reptile fencing at Grants Moor. Our volunteer group was form by members from BVCT, Surrey Amphibian and Reptile Group and Farnborough Street Residents Association.
This winter there is planned dredging work in several of the ponds on site. The fencing aims to exclude reptiles from the areas of work in order to mitigate any effects on the reptile population which Bernard has been studying. In future weeks reptiles will be translocated from the work areas to the exclusion zones set up today.
It was hard work digging the fences in but we managed to get both in thanks to the hard work of the volunteers!
