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 but did you know it’s under threat?
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.
