We’ve quickly got back into the swing of things at the fen, tidying up after Christmas and getting some new projects underway.
We have spent a couple of days this week trying to drain some of the larger puddles along the cycle track that runs beside Wicken Lode. We have dug some small grips from the path to the lode so a lot of the water will now freely flow away. There are still some small puddles, but you no longer need wellies to wade down the path. We even had a couple of webbed footed visitors come and check out what we were up to.
