Working landscapes

The top image shows the first of several scrapes being created at Willington GP, Bedfordshire within the sheep field. This has come about through on-going liasion with the Bedford River Valley Park staff.
The bottom image shows the main cliff top ringing site at Buckton, on-going networking at this site has resulted in the landowner recently taking up a Natural England higher level farming scheme (HLS) which protects and enhances the site for wildlife. From the ringing point of view its great that the recently ploughed wild bird cover strip will now run right up the scrub, this should boost ringing numbers.
