Otmoor Under Threat

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.

  1. Sadly not only is this wonderful place threatened with a 4 lane highway but also nearby Cothill fens a most beautiful area is also under threat.
    The thought of these peaceful places lost in time, being covered in tarmac is incomprehensible and should be saved at all costs
    These areas are only an hours journey from Northampton and are marvellous for all sorts of nature, wildlife and to unwind from the stress of everyday life
