Both Great Crested and Smooth newt were found on the site along with common frogs and toads. Further capture surveys are proposed to the works site in the coming months and potential monitoring to ensure these great numbers are retained after the temporary works have completed.Read More
Rozanna recently spent a day in the Yorkshire dales learning about the management and promotion of the new red squirrel route through Snaizeholme.
