At the end of 2014, we introduced the Temporary Exclusion Channel (TEC), a cost-effective product which when installed on a site can be crossed by vehicles and pedestrians but is impassable to newts and reptiles. It works with conventional newt and reptile fencing, can be leased in 1m sections making it very adaptable, and is easy to install.
In 2014 we had installed a 3m Temporary Exclusion Channel (TEC) as well as newt fencing, for a development site and receptor site for a development in Wokingham. The site has since been cleared of great crested newts – 14 had been successfully translocated to the nearby receptor site, a SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Green space), and great crested newts have recently been found to be breeding in one of the ponds there.
We have recently returned to the site to install permanent fencing and another Temporary Exclusion Channel (TEC) to keep the translocated great crested newts in the new SANG.
