It hardly seems like a day goes by without another woodland or wetland being threatened by destruction or development.
Over the border in Oxfordshire a much-loved reserve is under threat from a new road proposal. Many Northants birders will be familiar with Otmoor- it’s a regular venue for the monthly Bird Club car trips and regularly visited by others due to its relative proximity to the county.
Inconceivable as it might seem, a new road proposal is threatening to cut right through this marvellous reserve just as it’s reaching its prime.
More information and details of a Government petition can be found here.
