Wetlands conservation

Carr woodland

This requires little work, the low intervention management consciously allows dead wood in all its forms, stumps, branches, trunks etc to be left.


In contrast the reedbed at Lakeside Nature Reserve requires intensive management to prevent tree encroachment, approximately one quarter is cut each year.

Blackwater Valley Dragonflies, a full-colour guide to the 30 species of Dragonflies and Damselflies to be found in the Blackwater Valley is available.
