Apart from Geoff, I don’t know how many of you know of Woolston Eyes, but it’s a real hidden treasure where my teenaged son spends most of his weekends. http://www.woolstoneyes.com/ It’s been nominated by Chris Packham as Nature Reserve of the Year in the annual BBC Countryfile Magazine awards: http://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/articles/20043/1/Nature-reserve-nominated-for-national-award/Page1.html The reserve is the only nomination which is run completely by volunteers who work incredibly hard to manage and maintain the extensive site (just controlling the spread of Himalayan Balsam is a constant and full-time activity!). I’d be really grateful if you could take the time to support the nomination, which you can do here: http://www.countryfile.com/awards2014-15 If you’d be interested in becoming a member, which only costs £10 a year (£20 for families) plus a one off £10 fee for a key to the site, you can print a form from here: http://www.woolstoneyes.com/woolston-eyes/permits/ It really is a gem of a place and over the last year I’ve been lucky enough to see peregrine falcons, kingfishers, badgers, lots of bats and, only a few days ago, around 50,000 murmurating starlings, which was absolutely stunning. And all this is right on your doorstep. Thanks for listening.
