The Biodiversity of Pasture Field, Toft , Cambridgeshire

These images of a pair of Buzzards and Redwing and Fieldfare (part of a flock of more than 100 birds) were taken from our bungalow window in Toft this week,  It is a wonderful habitat for wildlife. For several years now, it has been horse grazing land but these have been removed and it seems there is the possibility that planning may be put in for house building. This was tried some years ago but failed because it is outside the building line of the village, because of the lack of amenities in the village and because of its value to the ecosystem of the area. None of these objections have changed but Government has! As well as supporting a large population of birds, including Barn Owl, Little Owl, Tawny Owl, Buzzards, Pheasants and many species of small birds, we have found both crested newts and the rare Cave spider on our property. I have also recorded 2 species of Bats and 7 species of dragon/damselfly along with Hare, Muntjac and Fox.
