For more than 10 years now much of the wildlife enhancements around Alton Water has been as a direct result of the hard work of a dedicated team of volunteers from the local community. Major projects include the construction of several bird hides, breeding areas for harvest mice, reptile and amphibians, as well as habitat management of woodlands and grassland. Locally produced timber has been used for additional seating and the installation of boardwalks across sensitive wetland areas. Regular monitoring of several animal groups occurs and plays a vital role in determining management regimes as well as feeding into nationally important surveys. If you would like to find out more,
