The Great Crested Newt (GCN) Pilot continues to be successful. Further habitat improvements were completed at Westfield Common in January and February 2020 to construct new ponds and restore existing ones. A full schedule of this year’s planned works is included in the year three report. These improvements are in addition to the complementary conservation work of local volunteers, guided by Surrey Wildlife Trust, in line with the wider management plan for the Common.

The pilot project gained recent national publicity via the Natural England blog which you can view here.
