Between 2016 and 2018 Ecosulis enhanced the mixed habitat of Sandford Farm Country Park through a variety of measures, creating opportunities for local wildlife and nature to flourish. Vegetation was cleared, ditches created, 6000 trees planted and 35,000 square metres of wildflower meadow planted. A number of wetland scrapes were also created to attract insects and birds. Further to these enhancements, Ecosulis have continued to support Taylor Wimpey with ongoing work to control invasive species such as Himalayan balsam along the Old River.
The restoration and enhancement habitat at Sandford Farm Country Park has already started to benefit local wildlife. By increasing the number of potential hibernation areas, providing access to wetlands and lower lying areas that hold water for longer periods of time and adding wildflower areas, the restoration has boosted biodiversity of the site, with a dramatic increase in the number of insects, birds and mamals recorded. Iconic species include the reed bunting, reed warbler, barn owl, common snipe, grass snake and stag beetle.
Time spent in wild nature is vital to human health and wellbeing. The restoration of Sandford Farm Country Park has created a vibrant and biodiverse green space in which local residents and visitors can experience such nature. The site’s boardwalks, paths, benches, bird hides and interpretation boards combine to provide people with an enriching and educational experience.
