Our recent great crested newt fencing works in conjunction with Whitcher Wildlife in Beeston, Cheshire has produced some very pleasing results in terms of species rescued from the site.
|Caudon Temporary Newt Fencing and stock|
fencing installed at Beeston, Cheshire.
1.4Km of Great crested newt mitigation fencing as well as 1.5Km of stock fencing was erected along the railway embankment of the site. This was to enable essential works to stabilise the embankments without endangering resident amphibian & reptile populations.
At the time of writing 2,103 Great Crested Newts have been collected from the location of the works, along with numbers of Smooth Newts, Frogs, Toads, and a couple of Grass Snakes.
Collected species are being translocated to adjacent suitable habitat away from the proposed works.
