Mystery fencing

Today Paddy and I walked past the new houses being built down the road. Being of an inquisitive nature, I wanted to see how they were coming along and the answer to that was, quite well, I suppose and one or two of the plots or houses are sold already. A little further on, down the lane that leads through the wooded area overlooking the lake, I noticed this fencing.
The wooden stakes are about three feet high and the black in between is some sort of fabric, but I've never seen a fence like it before.
Needs further investigation, perhaps...
Or maybe I just need to get a life!

I think it might be for newts, we have some near us for Great Crested Newts and it has to be there for quite some time and the land declared newt free before they can build on it.

Thanks Paul. Keith said it was probably for something like that.

I was going to suggest that it might be for Great Crested Newts, but I see that I have been beaten to it.

Jennyta said...

Thanks anyway, CW. :)

I concur, almost definitely for crested newts, same thing happened here a while ago, so pretty certain it's the newts, well almost certain..

Funny thing though, John, I have never heard of crested newts being around here.
