Buckets in Old Buckenham

Sorting out the great crested newts
Cotman Housing are still hoping to start soon on the building of the affordable housing in St Andrews Close, Old Buckenham. Site clearance has started and the area is enclosed in low 'newt-proof' barriers. Buckets have been set into the ground around the edge and the aim is to collect up any great crested newts that are inside the barriers and can be persuaded to enter the buckets during the night. They will then be collected up each morning and placed outside the barriers on their new purpose-built homes in Prince Harry's Wood.
