Well, well, well summer is upon us once again, isn't it grand?
To the myriad flowers that can be seen at the quarry I can add Little Ring-necked Plovers, a Peregrine Falcon and a nesting Raven (the first in Oxforshire for many years). There is rumour of a Barn Owl in one of the silos but that is only rumour. LR-nP are schedule one birds and we can be fined for disturbing them. The Newt Fencing has been completed at a cost of over £60,000 and we still haven't taken out one penny! How many newts have been found? Not many! Currently Newts are worth about £12,000 each. Oh the joys of trying to be ecologically friendly.
