Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust Builds Bird Habitat
The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust has helped create two manmade islands in order to provide the best possible conditions for a whole range of unusual birds at Whisby Nature Park and in Riverslea Lake at Kirkby Gravel Pits, Lincolnshire. Furthermore, the islands have been hailed as a great success, as the islands have begun to play host to a wide variety of birds not usually found in the area. Rachel Shaw, spokesman for the trust, said: "The project has been really successful.
"The low-lying islands, with plenty of vegetation, provide the perfect environment for birds who nest on the ground, providing protection from predators and a place of safety."
The project cost about £27,000 altogether and information gathering before the construction took about two years.
