Grant: £6,253

This former gravel pit near Oxford is a valuable wetland site with a mosaic of habitats.  The site had become overgrown and local Wildlife Trust BBOWT sought TOE funding to support pollarding overgrown trees, thinning back scrub and cutting back reeds in order to create open water areas. 

The work will lead to better conditions for a range of wetland plants and animals.
