Lodge Hill, the most important site for Nightingales in the UK, is once again under threat from a new housing development. We need your help again to save it.
Medway Council’s new public consultation runs from 16 March to 11 May 2018.
Please go to the RSPB campaign site and take a couple of minutes to make your voice heard by sending a message to Medway Council- it is very easy to do. https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/campaigning/protecting-wildlife-sites-near-you/save-lodge-hill/
The nightingale is one of our most severely threatened birds – its population has declined by more than 90% in the last 50 years. Fewer than 5,500 pairs now remain across the country.
The range of nightingales has also contracted dramatically, so they are now found only in the south and east of England.
Lodge Hill in Medway, is their best remaining site, critical for their survival, and so special that it is protected for the nation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Thank you in advance for adding your voice to this vital campaign.
