We will install a large floating duck house into the village pond in Lindfield.

Lindfield Fundraising stage

pledged of £1,071
days left

Ducks have previously only been able to nest on two small brick islands, this will provide them with additional space to rest in the pond and protect them from predators.

What we'll deliver:

  • A floating duck house

Why it's a great idea:

Pond attracts lots of ducks and other wildfowl throughout the year, this will create a secure house for them to rest and nest in on this historic village asset. Ducks and Waterfowl love to eat algae and are excellent for cutting down on algae that overruns ponds.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raise purchase order with our specialist pond contractor to order the duck house and ancillaries
  • Agree suitable date for installation
  • Arrange comms with key stakeholders on update.
  • Contractor will float the duck house out on the pond with their staff in waders to a suitable location
  • Rope attached to bottom of duck house and then attached to a weight at the other end and then lowered into position
