No place like home

Wildlife has not been deterred by the stink from the fouled land at the Avenue.

Kingfishers have been spotted flying low along the river, barn owls are nesting in the former plant area and little ringed plovers have made a home on wasteland and hard surfaces. Skylarks and lapwings are also visitors.

Water voles, grass snakes and the rare and protected great crested newts have been found.
