Great job by our team who got involved with tree planting at Carlton Marshes, as well as a big thank you to Suffolk Wildlife Trust for the opportunity to take part in a such great day! The day involved lots of mud, lots of digging, as well as planting hedgerows and trees such as Hawthorn, Dog Rose, Oak and Field Maple to encourage wildlife as well as enhancing the local landscape. The tree planting day forms part of a much bigger development to expand Carlton Marshes to 1000 acres over the next six months. The project is currently underway to restore wetland and create a new nature hub at the reserve near Lowestoft, Suffolk. The work follows a £1million fundraising effort from the public and the award of £4million from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, which have together enabled huge investment in the land. The project, supported by Sir David Attenborough, will be the biggest habitat restoration and wetland creation in the National Park for a decade as is intended to attract birds including marsh harriers, bitterns, common cranes, lapwings and redshanks. The project is due to be completed by Spring next year, be sure to pay a visit.  Click on Carlton Marshes website for more information on the nature reserve:  https://www.suffolkwildlifetrust.org/carlton
