  1. Hi there - great work keeping an eye out on the wildlife in Cholsey!
    We're campaigning to save birds, animals and plants in Oxfordshire and around Europe from changes to the European laws that protect them. The European Commission wants to review the Birds and Habitats Directives, despite the fact they've saved a number of at-risk species and are responsible for creating thousands of conservation areas in Europe. Can you and your followers help? All we need is for as many people as possible to put their names to the public consultation to the EU, which ends on Friday. We think these laws should be safeguarded, not undermined! More details are available here: http://www.tiny.cc/naturealert - any help is greatly appreciated, every voice counts!

  2. Already Done............I hope others will follow.
