Matt Prior is MDNEP Wildlife Champion 2016

At the recent Marlborough Downs NEP Spring Celebration, Matt Prior, Conservation Officer for WOS was named as MDNEP Wildlife Champion 2016. MDNEP is a farmer led project which aims to enhance this superb area of Wiltshire farmland for wildlife, community and access. Matt was one of several speakers during the evening and gave a talk about the ringing and monitoring of farmland birds. It is pertinent that this is the first time this prestigious award has been given to a person who is not a farmer and demonstrates how highly Matt’s efforts in monitoring and conserving farmland birds are rated and appreciated. Well done, Matt, you deserve this wonderful award.
