Another pond restored by the Wensum Farmers is Health Pit; a very ancient pit which leads onto the next landowners area of land – great for connectivity in the landscape! The pit was between 75-100% shaded prior to restoration but held around one foot of water. The restoration took place on the 21st September 2019, during which finches, long-tailed tits, great tits and blue tits were spotted in the area – definitely a lovely sight to keep the spirits up when you’re undertaking hard work as our NPP contractors were.

Post restoration you can clearly see where the digger has got back to the marl layer on the banks of the pond.
