Wings across the Ings – the Garganey Trust is creating new habitats on the farmland between Broomhill Flash and Wombwell Ings. Some of this farmland is being converted into wet grassland, open water and reedbeds. They have now obtained the final planning consent and work started in February.
Jeff Lunn, chair of the Garganey Trust, is giving an illustrated talk on the “Wings across the Ings” project at this meeting of the Barnsley Nats.
There are bound to be lots of questions and discussion; as usual from our members and visitors.
Following Jeff’s talk and questions, we have the Barnsley Nats’ annual general meeting.
We would like to know how you see the future of the Society, so please come full of ideas and suggestions.
This proved to be a fascinating presentation, so many complex issues were covered by Jeff. Along with the nature and conservation, we were given an insight into the history of the Gargney Trust, historical land use of the Ings to securing funding.
