Greathough Brook, Piano Corner

Grid Ref SO621154


The Dean Green Team did a survey of the plants, trees, animals and birds at Greathough Brook, Piano Corner in preparation for the Beaver project. This was a follow up from the survey on the 19th April and we went upstream. We found an amazing 47 different species of plants evidence of 18 types of animals and invertebrates 14 types of birds seen or heard 1 fungi 9 different types of trees.

It is hoped that we can have fencing around the brook to keep Beavers there. This is planned as a scheme to stem the flow of the brook and alleviate the flooding down to Lydbrook





Some of the team checking the plants further upstream.





These Buzzards were soaring in the sky above us.





These are our results and we think that they show how diverse the wildlife is here.
