Continuing on a theme of re-visiting previous work sites, we passed by Kennet Pans today that lies beside the Upper Forth Crossing at Kincardine.

In 2007, we were responsible for monitoring the mudflat and saltmarsh restoration project as part of the mitigation for the bridge piles, on behalf of Transport Scotland (picture to left).

We haven’t seen it for a few years, but when we did, it was clear that some nice new habitat has developed as was predicted by modelling.

 

A thick layer of new mud has now accreted and it is clear that plenty of prey is now present within it for birds to feed on – good outcome!
