The wetlands and David Bellamy
Last Thursday I attended the opening ceremony of the new wetlands at the Seven Sisters. David Bellamy was just as you would expect - full of enthusiasm about the project and praising the work of the Friends of Three Sisters and the other similar voluntary groups up and down the country who are creating areas of wetland. This project is very impressive because of the area it covers. As someone remarked to me it looked like the first world war trenches when it was being created but eventually it will be grassed over and become an area of great beauty.
I would welcome any comment from the Friends group with details of what this area will achieve towards increasing the diversity of wild life in the area.
