Clearing the Nature Reserve Pond

The Friends of Tincombe very first event with Cornwall Wildlife Trust took place on the 17th April 2021. Our very determined volunteers took on the massive task of clearing the pond weed!

It was purposefully a small volunteering event in which the Friends of Tincombe helped Stuart from CWT to remove invasive (and illegal to buy) Water Pennywort.

Amongst our finds included a few Smooth Newts and a Common Frog.

We will need to regularly remove this invasive pennywort from the nature reserve pond indefinitely due to it’s growth rate.

We hope to team up with Cornwall Wildlife Trust again at the end off May for the Big British Clean-up.
