Grove Farm Pond Monitoring Project

Our very successful monitoring project at Grove Farm concluded formally at the end of 2015, and the results have all been filed at the Suffolk Biological Records Centre. Now that the Suffolk Wildlife Trust have purchased a tract of adjacent land they have re-named the extended reserve as the Blackbourn Valley Nature Reserve. We visited the new land in spring 2016, and will continue to take an informal interest in the natural regeneration of the site.
