Nightingales under threat from planning application

Conservationists in West Berkshire are asking for help from WOS members as they seek to oppose a planning application to build 224 houses and 24 floating homes on Theale Main Lake.

The scrub around the lake is a stronghold for breeding nightingales during the summer.

Please read http://berksoc.org.uk/news/berkshires-nightingale-stronghold-under-threat-please-help-now/  where the Berkshire Ornithological Society explains the threat to the nightingales and other species which use the lake. Towards the end are details of how objections to the proposal can be registered. 

Details can also be found on http://www.facebook.com/groups/SaveTheThealeNightingales/?fref=nf

The deadline for comment is Monday 13th June.
