December 2006 Edit

  • Wildlife haven saved. The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust is delighted to announce today that it has reached its goal of raising £235,000 in just five weeks to save a 72 acre plot of land said to be the site where Kenneth Grahame was inspired to write the classic tale ‘Wind in the Willows’. The acquisition will double the size of the Trust’s existing Moor Copse Nature Reserve near the village of Tidmarsh in Berkshire. The resulting enlarged site will provide a thriving wildlife haven boasting ideal habitat for many threatened species, including the lesser spotted woodpecker, the scarlet tiger moth and of course the water vole - the original ‘Ratty’ Wildlife Trusts, December 22 / Biodiversity UK
