Volunteers have been conducting work around a valley in west Cumbria under the guidance of a nature group. 

Wild Ennerdale volunteers have been conducting shelter maintenance in the Ennerdale area along with making certain areas more habitable for fish. 

A spokesperson said: "Our enthusiastic volunteers were busy yesterday in the valley. As well as carrying out some shelter maintenance they cleared a culvert of winter storm debris so that fish can spawn upstream this Autumn."

Wild Ennerdale is made up of people and organisations who work under The National Trust, the Forestry Commission, United Utilities and Natural England. 

They say that they aim to improve the Ennerdale valley for the benefit of both nature and people. 

They are currently working with other groups to re-introduce beavers to Ennerdale, with similar initiatives taking place across other nature spaces in the UK.
