Since 2014, ECOREM has performed regular ecological follow ups for all Life+ SeineCityPark’s projects. The following observations have been made:
Pond raft efficiency
The installation of green floating rafts on Galiotte’s pond has proved fruitful as swans nested there in May 2016.
Both planned rafts for the Vieille Ferme pond have been installed.
Ecological follow up and habitat creations
Nets around the plantation were removed in certain areas. The vegetation has developed especially well and it is no longer necessary to protect the new shoots from duck and swan appetites.
Some cut-down poplar trunks along the towpath have been kept as host places for common species’ nestings. In fact, the tree cavities can become nests for species like the Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) (photo).
