Show all galleries

Lancaster Earth Moving were hired to complete the works on Havergate Island and Orford Ness. The work began in October 2011 and was complete by early March 2012 to avoid the bird breeding season.

On Orford Ness 2.5 km of new ditches  have been dug and are moving water across the site to the 6 hectares of new lagoons and scrapes which have been created as habitat for waders and waterfowl.

On Havergate Island, lagoon islands have been reprofiled to create a series of over 6 hectares of islands for nesting and feeding bird life. Over 150,000 m3 of spoil was moved.
