A PROJECT to make Regent's Park home to the biggest marsh in London is due to be completed this month.
Damselfly, reed warblers and kingfishers are just some of the species that will now make the park their home.
Royal Parks and Westminster Council have worked together on the £60,000 project, which aims to stop rare species dying out.
Cllr Steve Summers, chairman of the council's Go Green Board, said he was proud of his involvement in encouraging biodiversity.
