Oystercatcher - Haematopus ostralegus

Taken at South Lake Hide, Slimbridge WWT - wild, Glos, UK.

Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Black-winged Stilt,  and  the Jackdaw by Callum in the 'Guest photographer'
