Restoring for bittern and more at Ouse Fen – Tuesday, 28 February 2017
Nature is in trouble and recent reports reveal that many species are in rapid decline. From the big to the small, appropriate biodiversity-led minerals restoration can help support and recover species across the board.
In this new event for Spring 2017, we will continue to focus on priority species conservation through the appropriate and sustainable restoration and management of minerals sites, for biodiversity gain. In particular, we will be looking at how an ambitious project between the RSPB and Hanson to create Britain’s biggest reedbed at Needingworth Quarry/RSPB Ouse Fen reserve has not only helped provide valuable habitat for bittern when numbers were dangerously low but is also helping protect and re-establish populations of bearded tit, water vole, marsh harrier, otter and more, through the progressive restoration of this site for a nature conservation end-use.
We are very pleased to be visiting this new location for a NAM of event and are most grateful to all parties for their co-operation in welcoming us to their site and for their assistance in helping to showcase work being undertaken to enhance biodiversity there.
We do hope you can join us at this event and would urge you to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as limited places are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Simply contact us first to reserve a place by filling in the linked Booking Form and to discuss payment details. At just £40 + VAT for the day (including literature, refreshments, site visit and light lunch), we hope you agree this represents excellent value for money.
This event will be followed by further events planned for Spring 2017. We will keep you posted!
