Support for "Reed Bed Development Project".

Support for "Reed Bed Development Project".

Michael Copleston from the Langford Lowfields Reserve accepted, on behalf of the RSPB, a cheque for £1800 at our March meeting from our Group Leader Hilary Guy. It was our contribution to the Reed Bed Development project in which Michael has a major role. He had been our visiting speaker that evening and showed us how a working gravel quarry can be steadily converted into a haven for wild life.
