This is great for the islands in the Pillinge as it creates more bird nesting habitat, but bad news for the reedbeds as they require more pumping. Ponds support two thirds of the UK's native freshwater species of plants, invertebrates, mammals and amphibians. A two year-old pond can be just as valuable a habitat as one that’s 50 years old.
