21. Butts Pond, Staines Moor: habitat improvement

Aims: Improve wildlife corridors; Work together

Water body: Butts Pond
Project description

The pools at Butts Pond are on the Staines Moor SSSI and close to the Colne, the Wraysbury River and the Yeoveney Ditch.  As out-of-channel pools they are particularly valuable as breeding sites for amphibia and insects. Volunteers regularly remove vegetation such as bulrush (Typha latifolia) from the pools to allow in light and maintain open water.

Project lead: Spelthorne Natural History Society
Project partners: Spelthorne Borough Council, Natural England, volunteer groups
