Million Ponds Project in the news

Thanks to our colleagues in the Environment Agency (especially Alistair Driver) for getting some excellent coverage on the BBC website today.

You can see the article here.

The Environment Agency is one of the main partners in the Million Ponds Project, and has made a brilliant contribution to the project creating top quality ponds all around the country.

As readers of the blog will know Million Ponds is all about putting back clean, unpolluted, water into the countryside – something which is now rare in large parts of the landscape.

There’s also coverage in the Sunday Telegraph.

And we also get a kind comment from Mark Avery, Conservation Director of the RSPB (but Mark’s also recently become a Pond Conservation trustee, so he’s perhaps a little biased!).

For Radio 4 aficionados you can hear the seductive tones of Charlotte Green ever so nicely enunciating the names of Tadpole Shrimp, One-lined Diving Beetle and Threaded Toothwort at the crackingly early time of 5.30 am. Go to the link and slide forward to minute 4.00.
