If there are newts then you can't actually disturb them...


You need to check with local wildlife monitoring people who might be able to relocate them before touching the pond.

Ingle, I really would prefer a single plan that will fill some airspace above the height of the fence?

Aaaaaaaargh!

I'm getting notifications from the forum that a person I have blocked can still see my postings. I'd hoped a block would work both ways!

Aaaaaaaargh!

I'm not a fan of conifers overall. Is there such a thing as a wildlife friendly conifer?
