Sharing observations

Peacock in garden

Barnsley Nats brings together people who share an interest in natural history and the wildlife of the Barnsley area. We have a programme of meetings and field visits throughout the year. However these are suspended due to the Corvid-19 restrictions so we are sharing observations and information here.

One thought on “Sharing observations”

  1. Gordon and I are lucky enough to own the field beside our house. It has clay soil and had a persistently boggy area near a sycamore tree which locals said was a spring. We hired a digger and with the help of a contractor dug a sizeable hole last year. We are very pleased that this has been filling up nicely over winter and, in spite of some naysayers, has remained full to overflowing.

    We are now thinking of planting some rushes and other flora to encourage wildlife, and would be happy if anyone could share some local experience of this. In particular plants that may encourage the water to clear if possible.
