Save Tice's Meadow

As you may know, Tice's Meadow Nature Reserve is being sold by landowners Hanson.

There is an online petition that we are encouraging members of the public to sign to express their concerns to Hanson over the future of the site:
Thank you for your support.

2018 Annual Report

Our 2018 Annual Report is now on sale.

£15 for a full colour, glossy, 140 page A4 report. All profits will be spent on our work at Tice's Meadow Nature Reserve.

The report is much more than a list of the birds seen, it includes all of the site's wildlife, and is a record of all the work we did on site in 2018.

You can collect in person from Richard Horton, or we can post it to you (+ £2 p&p). Please DM or email us to place an order.

Once we've sold all 60 copies, we will release a free lower-res pdf for all to read.
