Beddington Farmlands Nature Reserve Update

Things in 2010 are progressing well. One of the most important developments is that the RSPB are visiting us soon to discuss the future of Beddington Farmlands. At some point the management of Beddington Farmlands will need to go over to some kind of trust or even managed by an organisation like the RSPB so it will be an important meeting.

Our bird groups' main aim is to do all we can to ensure that the site is maximised in terms of it's potential for birds, wildlife and for people that are interested in nature.

We are organising some more guided bird walks, a dawn chorus walk, some talks and hope to get an exhibition ready for the wandle valley festival and also the carshalton environmental fair.

Hopefully, while the trust is being set up to manage the site, we will continue to build the community of people who are interested in utilising what will certainly become a major resource for people and nature.

Great to hear you've got the RSPB involved, Peter.
It shows what an important site Beddington is.
Hope the meeting goes well.

Thanks Graham.
Hope they get involved- they could do with a presence round here- lots of potential to attract lots of members. Fingers crossed.
