Great Crested Newts are a protected UK species which require deep ponds with edge vegetation and no fish. Some areas of Kent have good populations but in order to keep these numbers we need to look after our ponds and create new ponds.
KSCP have been involved in making a new pond for newts this month – at Hamden Farm, near Smarden. Hamden Pond ,currently a muddy brown hole will soon be a thriving habitat.
We have funding to make more GCN ponds so please get in touch if you know of an area which may be suitable for such a pond.
