New cut groups fourth open day success
Great interest was shown in the New Cuts bird group where expert ornithologists were available to answer the many questions about the unique wildlife in the canal and on Paddington Meadows. Special interest was paid to the red-listed, extremely rare Willow Tits which seem to be thriving in the environment created by the disused canal as well as the rising numbers of different species being sighted in bird counts across the area.
Kevin Price, Chairman said “The event was another success and Mike Kenwright’s talk was again well received. It is a credit to the people of the area who turn up to support us and help raise valuable funds for the purchase of tools and equipment to progressively improve the area for all to enjoy. Such was the interest in Mike’s talk that by popular appeal we are inviting him back to give a repeat performance”
