Keep your eyes peeled when you're next down near Crabtree Ponds and you’ll spot the brand new carved bench depicting a bat and gnat, both creatures found around Crabtree Ponds Nature Reserve.
The gnat and the bat aren’t to scale though, so don’t worry about being chased by giant midges! Young people from Ellesmere Youth Project worked with local artist Jason Thompson to design the new woodland bench, now located next to the pond. So thank you to Jason and the group for the brilliant bench, and Big Lottery for funding it.
Whilst you're in the nature reserve, keep an eye out for a variety of other interesting wildlife including woodpeckers, moorhens, song thrush, mice and voles, and no doubt he odd Fox or two as well
