Bollin Valley Partnership - What is Happening in the Bollin Valley


April 2021
The first calves are born

Violet and Viv April 2021 web editAs well as all the other signs of spring, such as the carpets of woodland flowers, butterflies and very active birds busy making nests, it has been great to see the latest additions to the Longhorn herd arrive this month. Each year we are assigned a specific letter with which to name the calves with, this time its a 'V' and we already have quite a few calves including Violet, Viv (pictured) and our first born, Vice.
A few of the cows have gone back out to grass now so please be aware of our new mums and and keep dogs on a lead at all times.

Getting ready for spring


Fencing at Norcliffe Feb 21March for the ranger team is all about finishing off the last of the winter works and getting countryside sites ready for the busy spring and summer period. This has been an ongoing battle this year as the sites have been so busy but we've still managed lots of tree planting, footpath repairs, footpath surfacing as well as all the extra maintenance due to the increase in visitors. Pictured here is some fencing being completed in the Styal area ready for the cattle to be turned out in April.

Riverside fencing 2021editThe Bollin Valley Partnership are involved in a number of schemes to help in the fight against global warming. This winter we have been planting trees in locations all along the valley. Pictured here is a scheme at Macclesfield Riverside Park where 250 Willow, Elm and Alder trees have been planted next to the River Bollin to both enhance the habitat and provide long term river bank protection. The fencing is to protect the small trees and will be removed after a few years when they have become established.

Flooding In the Valley

 Flooded pathWith the very wet start to 2021 there has been a lot of flooding in the Bollin Valley. The photo to the left shows a flooded field adjacent to the Lymm Railway Line. The top of the kissing gate at the start of a path that crosses this field (not visible in this photo) is only just above the flood waters on the day this photo was taken.

If you are out for a walk at the moment it is sensible to have a map with you incase your intended route is blocked and wellies are definitely a good idea!
