Save Rhaslas Appeal

The New Year brings with it a new header photo. One of the record shots that Mike Hogan took of the Long-billed Dowitcher just after his very good find. Considering how important this site is to passage waders the record was perhaps not so surprising. Nonetheless the find of 2013 in my view.

Rhaslas Pond is under threat from development and I attach a link to a PDF which I urge you print off and sign and send to the Senior Planner dealing with this planning proposal. There are now LESS THAN 3 WEEKS TO RESPOND. Please act swiftly and spread news of this worthy appeal to others.

Geri Thomas, Mike Hogan, Martin Bevan, Martin Bell, Phil Hill et al need our support!

The link to the PDF will be placed in the sidebar permanently until the period for public comments and objection closes
