Find out about a very different approach to environmental conservation and habitat creation from James Page the Senior Reserve Warden, and Andrew Green the creator of the Kingfisher Bridge project.
Since 1995 the Kingfishers Bridge Project
has transformed 300 acres of arable farmland into a mosaic of wildlife habitats. Where tractors once cultivated the soil to grow potatoes and cereals there are now meadows with hundreds of wintering wildfowl, reedbeds with nesting marsh harriers and limestone cliffs with breeding sand martins and kingfishers.
Following the guided walk, Fellows and guests are invited to lunch together at the historic Maids Head
in nearby Wicken Fen to reflect on what we have seen and to consider whether the RSA could usefully take a local or regional initiative to follow up on the walk and other recent visits to natural conservation centres.
