London Gateway Intertidal Monitoring Continues
12th November 2017
MESL has continued to be busy in the Thames Estuary. We have now finished our first years' monitoring of the Salt Fleet Flats compensation site on the southern bank of the Thames and have had the unique opportunity of observing the evolution of the site which was breached a year ago as part of London Gateway's ecological mitigation and compensation plan. The site itself has undergone huge changes, from an pasture land to a mudflat supporting wading bird populations. We are looking forwards to seeing what further changes will be apparent at Salt Fleet Flats in 2018 as our monitoring continues.
