Swanscombe Marshes – What can you do?

Swanscombe Marshes - What can you do?

Hot on the heels of the previous post where Natural England have recognised that the area should be designated as a SSSI, it is important to remember that this in no way means that the London Resort Development will not go through. The final decision on the development will be made by the Secretary of State and it is vital that we continue to work towards protecting the area.   With that in mind, what can you do to help the campaign to Save Swanscombe Marshes and peninsular? There are lots of ways you can get involved. Join campaigning groups on social media (Facebook, Twitter etc) Save Swanscombe Peninsula being an excellent start.  Follow our updates, and those of the central RSPB Community Follow the ...

Swanscombe Marshes some good News

Good news for Swanscombe Marshes, Natural England have declared that it should be a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).  Pressure from RSPB, Buglife and Kent Wildlife Trust have opposed the London Resort project and this is a great step forward.     Currently the area has been "notified" which gives it the same weight of protection as a fully designated SSSI, there is now a consultation period until 12th July 2021.   After this it will be declared, amended or withdrawn. Buglife are currently leading the campaign to save the habitat of the Distinguished Jumping Spider, at least 77 conservation organisations are supporting this.   Read their full article  here. This is by no means the end of the fight but it recognises ...

Nature Watch calendar now ready to order

**UPDATE** You can now order your copy of the Nature Watch' calendar directly from the PixaPrint website: https://www.pixaprints.co.uk/designs/ordershared/1209/775acf3508b27a600e25a6d3a12d76b0 Contact Paul via the groupleader email address (groupleader@rspbgravesend.org.uk) for the site password and a 10% discount code. ** During the first lockdown we started a 'Stay-at-Home' Facebook group for the Gravesend RSPB local group.  For twelve weeks we ran a weekly informal photo competition with a different theme each week.  One of the ideas suggested was to turn the winning photos into a calendar. As the facebook group later got re-named 'Nature Watch' Gravesend RSPB Facebook group, I am pleased to announce I have compiled a Gravesend RSPB local group Nature Watch calendar for 2021, based on these photos and a selection of some of the best photographs ...
