Somebody must know, because they all seem to have individual social workers now ...

To help them cope with their alcohol dependence?

I wonder how many Crested Newts there are in the UK

The newts are all wondering too, they all want to find a mate and reproduce. But whenever they go looking for one, there's a building project in the way. Or when they do find the newt of their dreams, they get abducted by someone who wants to stop a building project. But that scenario could end well; they might get a dream home provided for them?... "Ooh look, there's a breeding pair! We really must look after them."

 

 Aren't they all "Great Crested Newts"? If so, my hypothetical lonely newt won't be fussy; any Crested Newt of the required sex will be Great.

Thanks for the update and drone footage as it gives a better idea of the works.

 

The Shropshire Union canal society have just up dated their website to include the May work parties.

Great video and great dog! Looks like its come on a bit since I last walked down there a couple of years ago. I think quite a lot of vegetation has been cleared from the canal bed since then.

I suppose the Coronavirus epidemic has led to the lengthy delay for restoration and the work seems a long way still from bridge 88 at Pant and even longer from Llanymynech.

 

Delays have been made through ecological grounds and I still am sceptical about the benefits, which seems to driven by the ecologists agenda and of course generate profits for the ecologist, botanist, mycologist and zoologist.
