OWLS - Oxhill Wild Life Survey

OWLS is the Oxhill Parish Biodiversity Action Plan Group.  We have now had two meetings and made a beginning by outlining several projects we want to tackle: gardens, waste ground, and ponds.  But first, with your help, we have to survey them.  We need to find out what we’ve got, and just as important, what we’ve lost, and hopefully we can then do something about it.  We want to enhance the natural features – brooks, hills, valleys, woods, hedgerows and fields.  We need to welcome nature in, encourage the plants that want to grow in our locality, and bring a rich and diverse plant and animal life to our doorsteps.  Access to nature greatly enriches our lives and keeps us healthy.

You will find with this month’s Oxhill News an explanatory letter and a form, which I hope everyone will fill in over the next three months.  So please get counting.  The whole family can get involved.  Don’t worry if you are not sure what you are looking at – just have a guess or give a brief description which should enable us to deduce what it is.  There is help to hand if you need it.

Mike Collins is very kindly setting up a linked web site for nature photographs with our parish web site.  Anyone will be able to download pictures on to this site.  They don’t necessarily have to be taken in Oxhill, but preferably in our corner of South Warwickshire.
