The discovery of a stone curlew during an ecological survey at a farm & the flurry of interest it generated amongst bird watchers highlights the value of farmland for wildlife & the need for conservationists & farmers to work more closely. https://www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org/news/rare-bird-discovery-highlights-need-collaboration
A lot of people talk down the idea of rewilding without knowing what the term even means. Here is a brilliant short animation laying out a vision for what rewilding looks like in an upland landscape https://www.rewildingbritain.org.uk/explore-rewilding/what-is-rewilding/rewilding-the-uplands
For #LoveParksWeek, we also wanted to highlight one of our wonderful Local Nature Reserves.
