WWT Consulting to provide recommendations for habitat enhancement at Camphire wetlands
Matt and Bea have just returned from a site visit to Strancally Castle (Co. Waterford, Ireland) to carry out a feasibility assessment of the Camphire wetland habitats. The aim of this project is to provide recommendations on habitat enhancement for Whooper swans (and other waterbirds) for 290 acres of private land adjacent to Strancally Castle. The area is known to be an important foraging site for Whooper swans during the winter and regularly registers numbers of national importance for the species. It is also used by many other species of wildfowl.
After a very useful on-site meeting with our Client and the Estate Manager, we carried out our field investigations (accompanied by Tilly – our Client’s lovely dog). We will be reporting on the suitability of the site for wetland enhancement and the potential for increasing its biodiversity.
We were also lucky enough to miss all the Irish rain!
