Koinslieu lake to be drained?

Recommended Posts

"The dam was originally built to provide a head of water for water wheels at the nearby Foxdale Mines but the mines closed in 1911 and since that time the lake has become a wonderful area for wildlife holding a variety of wildfowl throughout the year including the more rare Great-crested Grebe and Green-winged Teal.  In spring and summer among others, breeding tufted duck can be seen and whooper Swans winter annually at the lake."
