New Cornwall Birding Reserve – Your help needed

A worthy cause which I thought that I would highlight. I've copied the text from from Cornwall Birding

As you may or may not know, Cornwall Birding is working with Sainsbury’s to secure land at Hayle which will hold a new food store and incorporate a superb new nature reserve which we will be managing. The reserve has great potential with plans for large areas of reed bed, open pools and wader scrapes with plenty of walkways, viewing areas and bird hides. It will be open to all, not a members only reserve! So we need your help in securing the planning. If you could spare just a few minutes composing a letter or e-mail to the address at the bottom of the page showing your support for the application, it would be greatly appreciated.

4 possible grounds of support in no particular order:

1. A modern new foodstore serving Hayle, improving choice and competition and enabling Hayle residents to do their weekly food shop locally. The Harbourside is not an appropriate location for a foodstore in heritage and traffic terms.
2. Creation of 270 jobs and proper training for new colleagues.
3. A new nature reserve, with public access and co-ordinated management. A great local resource!
4. A green buffer between the development and Angarrack, protecting the amenity of the village for ever.

Here are a couple of photos from my recent visit to Pendeen. I'm hoping to visit again in the next few weeks though it does seem to have got rather quiet now.
