Here are some useful resources, particularly for farmers, land managers or conservation advisers, but any interested people will find some gems in here. Please use / download / print / share them. We will add to this over time so keep checking back or follow our Facebook page or Twitter account for notifications of new stuff on the website.

For starters please check out our popular wader scrapes hints and tips and case study notes of farm sluices deployed on Carrs Wetland farms, summarizing the lessons and insight gleaned from the early years of the Carrs Wetland Project. We’ve had one kind comment that the scrapes hints and tips offers a more comprehensive explanation of ‘how to do it’ than any Technical Advice Notes currently available from Natural England etc.
