Embsay Reservoir Habitat Recreation Work

Habitat recreation work has commenced at our Embsay Reservoir site. Fencing has been erected around part of the site, to create a wildlife refuge and allow the vegetation to regrow in areas that have been badly eroded by foot traffic.

Around 400 trees have also been planted. This will diversify the habitat around the two small becks and provide areas for ducks and geese to nest, and frogs and toads to find refuge.

This work has been carried out in partnership with the Wild Trout Trust and Skipton Angling Association. Further work is planned for the site, particularly around the Lowbourn Beck channel, during Spring 2018.
