Colchester, Newt pond lost in coastal realignment, TL9630013600
 
 
hide/show OS map  
Status: Access: Unknown/other
Summary: Failed mitigation led to the flooding of a great crested newt breeding pond - located on map - in 2004 the newts had still not recolonised the pond due to high salinity - breeding ponds were reduced from 2 out of 5 to 1 out of 6 ponds. A detailed survey was not carried out prior to the coastal realignment but a detailed survey was carried out after the 'development' in 2004.
