PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The future of a Cambridgeshire nature reserve has been secured for the next 10 years in a new plan. The management plan has been agreed upon for Bainton Heath reserve. National Grid Electricity Transmission and conservational group the Langdyke Countryside Trust came to the agreement, which means the twenty-acre site near Peterborough will be maintained until 2032. It also contributes to National Grid’s target of delivering environmental value as part of its commitment to Ofgem across non-operational estate. Bainton Heath lies within the area of the John Clare Countryside; the setting for an ambitious nature recovery project that was launched by the Langdyke Countryside Trust in 2019. The site was a former tip for waste ash from power stations but has since been colonised by a variety of flowers, mosses, lichens, butterflies and birds. It also hosts strong breeding populations of summer migrants, including reed and grasshopper warblers.

We initially leased the site to the Trust for a three-year period but the new agreement will see National Grid sponsoring the site which will enable conservation measures go above and beyond current levels.

.” Some of the first projects that Langdyke will tackle include installing areas of fencing to stop deer from eating the lower branches of trees - something that has resulted in a drop in the number of nightingales at the site. It is hoped they will soon return once the work has been done. Surveys are also underway looking at the scrub areas with a plan to create better management of these areas. Langdyke chairman Richard Astle added: “The announcement is excellent news for the site, its wildlife and local communities. There is plenty of work that we are looking forward to undertaking at Bainton; at present parts of the site are very overgrown and without active management areas will be lost to larger more dominant vegetation, putting at risk the future of many of the sites flowers, lichens and insects.” Although not open to the public, visits are occasionally arranged by the Trust.
