Writing Competition "Failing Nature and Wildlife "

Unlike the HSS we will be running a Competition open to our Members and ALL alike called "Failing Nature and Wildlife " we would like to hear your essay on what you think the Local Authority in Calderdale are doing wrong in the management of the LNR and throughout  . Unlike the HSS competition we havent taken a brief from the council and find it more important to identify and protect the turbulent time that the Nature Reserve is going through to the benefit of wildlife.  You dont need to be a member of FEET who have been recording in Calderdale for over 20 yrs but are welcome to join see FEET website. Visit our web site to see what we have found over the years http://www.ukwildlife.net/ much of it in Calderdale
