River Cole, Birmingham.
Working with Waterside Care volunteers and Keep Britain Tidy the WTT have explored potential ways of improving in-channel conditions of the River Cole in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham.
Although an extremely densely-populated part of the city, the site of an old brick pits complex has been transformed into an oasis of wildlife that covers an impressive area. Sadly, littering is a large problem and fly tipping is common. The Waterside Care group run regular litter clean ups as well as taking part in the management of vegetation and other aspects of the wildlife reserve.
Trout in the Town hopes to be able to find ways to support the group in extending activities to both riverbank and in-channel habitat improvement works. There are already surveys and proposed actions that have been put in place by the WTT that we hope to be able to help to bring to fruition.
