Perking up Ham Pond

Ham Pond has had a minor face-lift that should help the wildlife that has its home there. The island (if you can call something that small an island) has been enlarged, presumably to make it a more attractive nesting spot. The swans were there a couple of years ago but have been closer to the bank (and to dogs) since then.

The low rustic fence has been repaired and extended to remind children of all ages that they should keep away from the water. Sadly the dogs will take no notice and some owners are still stupid enough to allow their dogs in to the water even when the birds are breeding. I'd ban dogs from the whole of Ham Common!
