Wildflowers make a come back at New Fen

Wildflowers on New Fen

A wonderful display of wildflowers can be seen on New Fen this year as the fen plants start to make a come back. New Fen had lost its fen habitat as it became colonised by trees, last year we set about removing them with many a volunteer task spent clearing vegatation. Once the trees were gone a sea of nettles and thistles devloped but with careful management these are now making way for some of the once lost fen plants. This is only the begining we have a long way to go to match Thelnetham Fen next door, but we are well on our way. Next step will be to cut the fen vegetation once it has stopped flowering, this is a big job if you want to come along and lend a hand please get in touch with our Conservation Manager Ellie Beach ellie.beach [at] lohp.org.uk

Help save Reeves Meadows

Reeves Meadows

We are excited to have a once-in-lifetime opportunity to purchase a key piece of land which provides both a vital link in our chain of wildlife sites along the Little Ouse river, and a new gateway for visitors to the valley. Reeves Meadows run from ancient Thelnetham Church down to the river, and reunite the rich wildlife sites of Hinderclay Fen and the Thelnetham and Blo-Norton Fens. They also link Carr Meadow, our most recent acquisition, to these sites, providing even greater possibilities for enhancing the wildlife and landscape of this already internationally important area. The opportunity to provide a discrete parking area close to the road will be welcomed by the many people who enjoy walking the valley's many footpaths and discovering its rich wildlife, from otters to orchids.

To secure Reeves Meadows as an integral link in the Little Ouse wildife corridor, and for the enjoyment of future generations, we urgently need to raise £140,000. Please visit our appeal page and help make this dream a reality.
