A round up of the top countryside, conservation, wildlife and forestry stories as chosen by the CJS Team.


Logo: British Wildlife Photography AwardsThe British Wildlife Photography Awards proudly announce the winners for 2019.

The awards celebrate both the work of amateur and professional photographers and the beauty and diversity of British wildlife. Winning images are chosen from thousands of entries in fifteen separate categories including a category for film and two junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.

Grey herons thrive around London’s wilder waterways, but they also do well in more urban settings such as the smaller parks and canals, despite the litter and large numbers of people walking by. This individual was hunting in the cover of a bridge – presumably the fish were taking shelter among the fallen leaves and plastic bottles. The morning light shining through a grill gives the impression that the bird is trapped as it gazes out through the mesh.

We'll be publishing a selection of the winning images through the week and collating them all here.


Somerset landowner kills fish by tipping chemicals on ground - Environment Agency

Tipping chemicals left over from his plant nursery business onto gravel ended up in a stream and killing hundreds of fish. 

A retired plant nursery owner has ended up with a bill of more than £27,000 for illegally disposing of waste herbicides and pesticides at a site in Somerset. The chemicals entered a stream and killed more than 270 fish.

In September 2017 the Environment Agency received a report of dead fish in a watercourse known as the London Cross tributary near Combe Florey, Taunton. Investigating officers found dead lamprey, bullhead, brown trout, eels, freshwater shrimps and other aquatic invertebrates that are food for fish. They followed the trail of dead fish and invertebrates upstream to some pipes draining into a ditch.

The next day officers met with the landowner, Michael Cheadle, who showed them an area of gravel near a polytunnel where he said he’d disposed of some old chemicals used at his former nursery business including a fungicide, disinfectant and some fertiliser granules. He said that afterwards he hosed down the area with water. The gravel was only 15 metres from the ditch the officers had seen the previous day.  Cheadle later admitted disposing of a total of 6 chemicals at the site including a fungicide called Amistar that is highly toxic to aquatic life. He told officers he had burnt the empty pesticide containers on a bonfire. Water samples taken from the ditch and stream also contained Lindane, a persistent insecticide that is toxic to humans.

The investigation revealed there was a land drain beneath the gravel where the defendant disposed of the waste pesticides allowing the chemicals direct access to the ditch and nearby stream. A biological survey confirmed the pollution had ‘significantly impacted’ approximately 2 miles of watercourse. Some of the species affected, including eels and lamprey, are endangered.


Calls for animal welfare to feature in Wales’ flood and coastal erosion plans - RSPCA Cymru

Animal welfare must be a key consideration of the Welsh Government’s new strategy for flood and coastal erosion risk, according to RSPCA Cymru.

The animal welfare charity has responded to the Welsh Government’s new plans, highlighting the importance of ensuring communities are prepared to protect animals in the event of an emergency.

Almost half of all households in Wales own at least one animal, and many may be unwilling to vacate or leave an emergency situation unless the welfare of their animals was guaranteed.

The RSPCA believes incorporating guidance and advice for pet, equine and farm animal owners, and animal-related businesses, is key in ensuring animal safety during emergency situations.


Transport Secretary acts on HS2 ancient woodland clearances during Oakervee review - Department for Transport

Removals of ancient woodlands for HS2 stopped during independent review unless they are absolutely necessary to avoid major cost and schedule impacts.

Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps has today (16 September 2019) ordered that removals of ancient woodlands for HS2 be stopped during the independent review into the project - unless they are shown to be absolutely necessary to avoid major cost and schedule impacts, should the scheme proceed as planned.

The Transport Secretary told HS2 Ltd to review its ancient woodlands clearance programme – and assess what removals can be halted until after the examination of HS2, led by Doug Oakervee, has reported in autumn.

He recognised the concerns of local residents and campaigners that clearing ancient woodland is irreversible.

The Transport Secretary told HS2 Ltd today that these removals will only be allowed during Oakervee’s work if they are shown to be absolutely necessary to prevent major cost and schedule impacts.  

Response: Woodland Trust gives guarded welcome to pausing of ancient woodland removal on HS2
Responding to today's announcement that ancient woodland removal will be paused on the first phase of HS2 pending the outcome of the current review, Woodland Trust ecologist Luci Ryan said:

"This is a welcome step in the right direction for our ancient woodlands, but unfortunately these woods remain threatened as HS2 can still decide for themselves whether works continue or not. Until the outcome of the review all ancient woodlands should be off limits full stop. Our welcome is therefore cautious. We thank all our supporters who have joined us in putting so much pressure on Government to affect this change of heart. The fact the Secretary of State recognises that clearing irreplaceable ancient woodland is irreversible is a huge step in the right direction. We hope HS2 Ltd use this time to consider engineering solutions that could save these irreplaceable habitats."

Ancient woodland is one of our most precious natural habitats. It cannot be moved. It cannot be replaced. It accounts for just 2.4 per cent of land in the UK. Ancient woodlands are highly complex ecological communities that have developed over centuries.

At least 108 ancient woods will be affected by HS2 as a whole. There will be direct loss to at least 63 ancient woods totalling 57.99ha and damage due to noise, vibration, changes to lighting and dust  to a further 47 woods lying on or near the construction boundaries .


Rare sand lizards released back into the wild - Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust

Children from Puddletown First School and Cheselbourne School in Dorset assisted conservationists in giving the UK's rarest lizard a helping hand.

They released 84 sand lizards at the heath within Puddletown Forest in Dorset, bringing the total number released in the current programme to 10,000. This work is part of an ongoing partnership to restore the species to its former range.

This was the final of the three programmed releases to reintroduce the species.

Future work will include surveys to see how the animals are doing. The surveys are a long-term process to see if the animals are breeding and gradually starting to increase their range through time. As the heaths are very well managed for all of the native plants and animals we are certain that the sand lizards will also do very well.


Game management doesn’t disturb endangered species, GWCT study finds – Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust

Species of conservation concern, including rare woodland plants and butterflies, are not negatively affected by game management, a new study has found.

Ecologists from the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), a leading research charity in Fordingbridge, discovered the findings in The effect of game management on the conservation value of woodland rides.

They surveyed 139 woods across two regions - southern and eastern. Sites in the southern region were in Hampshire and South Wessex, while sites were located in the Anglian Plain, Breckland, Suffolk coast and Heaths natural areas in the eastern region.

Approximately half of these woods were actively managed for game, while the other half hadn’t been for the past 25 years.

In each wood, they measured the amount and size of the ride habitat, selected the widest ride in the wood, assessed the level of disturbance from footfall or vehicles, and recorded the percentage cover of different plant groups and the number of plant species.

They then took these measurements at different locations within the ride (central, ride side and wood edge) to see the effects of game management varied between on these different locations and counted the number of species in the shrub community. Finally, they surveyed the butterfly community of the ride. These measurements were used to compare the ride habitat between game and non-game woods.

Findings showed the overall amount of ride habitat was not greater in woods managed for game, but the rides present were 20% wider and more open.

Lucy Capstick, a research ecologist at GWCT and lead author on the paper, said: “Overall, game management did not have a consistently negative effect on species of conservation concern, with the abundance of butterflies and richness of ancient woodland indicator species unaffected by game management.”

Mid & East Antrim sees red as new squirrels make coastal country park home - Mid & East Antrim Borough Council

Carnfunnock Country Park is to become a haven for red squirrels as the furry friends are reintroduced in a bid to boost numbers across Northern Ireland.

Image: Mid and East Antrim Borough CouncilImage: Mid and East Antrim Borough Council

Despite being present in Ireland for more than 10,000 years, red squirrels have declined dramatically due to loss of habitat and diseases spread by the invasive grey squirrel.

But a local environmental group alongside Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, and Cairndhu Golf Club are hoping to change this by reintroducing the animals with a special immersive, woodland enclosure at Carnfunnock Country Park on the famous Antrim Coast.

Ballygally Biodiversity Group have been working tirelessly for the past four years to not only raise awareness around the issues facing reds, but to get involved in this special breeding programme by Belfast Zoo and to secure this stunning location for the release.

Joe Dowdall from the group hopes this project will bring a resurgence of reds back to this part of County Antrim: “We are delighted to release these animals here at Carnfunnock Country Park. People have fond memories of walking through this same woodland as kids and enjoying watching red squirrels, and hopefully now the future generations to come can also experience this as the population reinstates itself here. We have already seen success in Glenarm where the first pilot scheme was introduced and this is just another step forward in our mission to ensure the conservation of this beautiful, native species.


Do nature shows deceive us into thinking our planet is fine? – Bangor University

Research into recent BBC and Netflix nature documentaries suggests that while they increasingly mention threats faced by the natural world, they rarely show the full extent of human-caused environmental destruction

There is overwhelming scientific consensus that nature is being severely affected by humans, the rate of species extinctions is accelerating, and that this has serious impacts. Nature documentaries have sometimes been criticised for failing to show the true extent of this environmental loss. A new study found that while recent high-profile nature documentaries talk more about the threats facing the inspiring natural wonders portrayed, nature is still mostly visually depicted as pristine and untouched, potentially resulting in a sense of complacency among viewers.

Researchers from Bangor University, University of Kent, Newcastle University and University of Oxford analysed Netflix’s Our Planet alongside BBC’s Dynasties, Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II to determine the frequency of words that mention environmental threats and conservation successes. Promotional material for the Netflix series Our Planet highlights its focus on revealing the key issues that urgently threaten the existence of natural wonders and wildlife spectacles. While the series does indeed talk more about threats (and the potential effectiveness of conservation actions to address these threats) than the previous BBC offerings analysed, the researchers note that visually the series is very similar to these BBC documentaries. The rapid conversion of habitats across the planet and the impacts of humans almost everywhere is hardly shown.


It’s time for some Acorn Antics! – Natural Resources Wales

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is asking education and learning groups to get outside and collect acorns.

The annual Acorn Antics project helps NRW plant more trees which have been grown from local seeds.

It also gives young people the opportunity to learn about, and connect with, the natural environment in Wales.

Ffion Hughes, Specialist Advisor: Education, Learning & Skills, Natural Resources Wales said: “Re-planting trees in the area they were found as acorns means they are better suited to the local conditions and provide the greatest benefit to local wildlife. The project also gives people the chance to get outside and learn about our natural environment, while helping to protect it at the same time. Once again, we’re teaming up with schools and education groups to develop activities that can teach learners about the environment while they are collecting acorns.”

Seed collections can be organised by all sorts of education and learning groups such as, schools, Brownies, Scouts or Young Farmers.

People can also get involved by donating acorns to their local group or inviting them to collect acorns from their land.

Ffion continued: “Oak trees provide a home for wildlife and help reduce the effects of climate change by taking in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - they can also help reduce flood risk and create great places for people to relax and enjoy the outdoors. We hope that lots of groups will want to get outside, raise some money, and help ensure there will be plenty of Welsh oaks for the future.”


Two-thirds of people support limiting air travel to tackle climate change – Cardiff University

Addressing climate change requires a ‘high’ or ‘extremely high’ level of urgency, say more than three in five people.

Two-thirds of people also support limiting air travel in order to address climate change, whilst just over half are in support of reducing the amount of meat in our diets.

This is according to results from a YouGov poll commissioned by a brand new UK research centre set up to examine the social and behavioural changes needed for a low-carbon and sustainable society.

Led by scientists from Cardiff University, the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations (CAST) will explore ways in which people can act directly to reduce their own carbon emissions, as well as influence other people, organisational decisions, and policies.

The centre has also been praised by climate activist Greta Thunberg who, in a special recorded message, described CAST as ‘extremely important and essential’ to helping achieve the drastic changes in our lifestyles to combat the climate crisis.

The £5m ESRC-funded centre is a collaboration between Cardiff, Manchester, York and East Anglia Universities, as well as the charity Climate Outreach.


Community pulls together to safeguard seals – Scottish Natural Heritage

Grey Seal bull resting ©Lorne GIll/SNHScottish Natural Heritage (SNH) has teamed up with a local community to help people enjoy one of Scotland’s best wildlife spectacles responsibly.

Up to 2,000 grey seals haul out on the sand banks of the Ythan at Forvie National Nature Reserve (NNR) to rest, creating a wonderful opportunity for wildlife watching.

Concerns have frequently been raised about the potential for the seals to be disturbed by visitors walking down the north shore of the river.  Past incidents have resulted in hundreds of seals rushing into the water which is both detrimental to the seals and spoils the experience for others.

In response to these concerns, SNH is working with the newly formed Newburgh and Ythan Community Trust and other local partners to improve the car park, paths and viewing points on the Newburgh beach side of the Ythan, near the haul out site.

From this location wildlife lovers have the best view of the seals across the river while also ensuring that they are not scared off the beach.

David Pickett, SNH’s Forvie nature reserve manager, said: “Seeing thousands of seals hauled up together on the beach is truly amazing and we’d encourage people to experience this unforgettable encounter with nature.

“We’ve been working with the local community over the last few years to help people enjoy this spectacle without disturbing the seals. Further improvements will make it even easier for people to find the best place to see the seals.”


Project to protect native White-clawed crayfish in Derbyshire - Environment Agency

A partnership project to conserve native white-clawed crayfish in Derbyshire has completed its second successful year with the removal of 2,000 non-native invasive signal crayfish from Markeaton Lake in Derby – double the amount it removed in 2018.

The Signal Crayfish Removal Project led by the National Trust, aims to support the recovery of white-clawed crayfish by preventing signal crayfish from expanding into the upstream Markeaton Brook and Kedleston Lakes where the native species are known to be found. Native white-clawed crayfish have been in decline since non-native American signal crayfish escaped into UK waters in the 1970s. These larger, invasive crayfish outcompete native species for food and habitat and carry a disease fatal to the UK species.

Louise Hill, Biodiversity Officer at the Environment Agency in the East Midlands said: “Last year the project in Markeaton Lake saw the capture of around 1,000 signal crayfish. This year we have doubled this to 2,000, which is a great result. After two years there are indications that the numbers and size of the non-native crayfish are reducing. We have been working with the National Trust, Derby City Council, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Earl of Harrington Angling Club, University of Derby and Nottingham Trent University and next year sees the final year of the project. While the signs of change are encouraging, we still have a long way to go until we are satisfied that our native crayfish populations are fully protected. We are also looking at a number of measures to further secure the future of the White-clawed crayfish, including the creation of ‘ark’ sites to relocate them to areas where they will be free from invaders.”


New research shows that at least £3 billion is needed for nature-friendly farming - The Wildlife Trusts

The Wildlife Trusts, RSPB and National Trust have today called on the UK government to support our farmers and land managers to help restore nature and tackle climate change on their land.

Three of the country’s largest conservation charities have today called on the UK government to put its money where its mouth is – after new figures reveal that at least £3 billion is needed to support our farmers and land managers to help restore nature and tackle climate change on their land.

The UK currently spends around £3.2 billion a year on both farm income support and environmental payments under the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). New data published today reveals that we need to re-invest this money to support nature-friendly farming.

The RSPB, National Trust and The Wildlife Trusts say a long-term financial commitment to pay farmers and land managers is needed if they are to help the UK Government and devolved administrations meet their respective commitments to recover the natural environment and address the climate crisis.

Reaction: CLA responds to 'Nature Friendly' farming report from National Trust, The Wildlife Trusts and RSPB - CLA

Responding to the policy paper by the RSPB, National Trust and Wildlife Trusts, Paying for Public Goods from environmental land management in England, Country Land and Business Association (CLA) President Tim Breitmeyer said: “This is welcome research which builds on previous good work outlining some of the financial costs behind commitments on the environment. The figures are a starting point for any conversation on what a future payment system will look like and supports the CLA’s consistent message that more than the current budget will be needed if we are to support the aspirations of the 25 year environmental plan while boosting productivity. It is also interesting to see advice included in the modelling. The proposed changes to the system are wide-ranging and farmers will require ongoing support to make the most of these new opportunities. It is for this reason that the CLA has called for an additional £200 million a year investment to increase productivity, skills and knowledge throughout the post-Brexit transition period. This is on top of the investment costed in the paper, but it will also ensure environmental gains are realised by helping farmers produce more with less inputs, while boosting resilience and productive capacity across our farming system.”


Shifting the focus of climate-change strategies may benefit younger generations - Imperial College London

Strategies to limit climate change that focus on warming in the next couple of decades would leave less of a burden for future generations.

Research led by Imperial College London and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria, suggests a new underpinning logic for strategies that seek to limit climate change. Their new proposal is published today in Nature.

Most strategies seek to limit climate change by the year 2100. The strategies may include tactics such as deployment of new renewable technologies, removing carbon from the atmosphere (through planting trees or new technologies), or mandating energy efficiency targets.

However, by focusing on the year 2100, these strategies are inconsistent with the Paris Agreement climate goal – to keep warming below 2°C, and ideally below 1.5°C, at any time in the future.

National Parks need ‘resurgence of nature’ - Yorkshire Dales National Park

Natural England leader Tony Juniper has told the UK National Parks Conference that National Parks need to be “distinctively better” places for nature. 

Addressing delegates at the three-day meeting in the Yorkshire Dales, he said the ‘door was open’ for National Park Authorities to work more closely with Natural England – and that now was ‘an exciting moment to do things in a radically different way’. 

“These places of tranquillity and beauty – National Parks – have become too tranquil.  Thirty years ago there was more bird song, more insects buzzing.  A lot is missing from our landscapes; in many cases the wildlife is seriously depleted.  We need a resurgence of nature in National Parks. The [proposed new] Environmental Land Management system could be a hugely powerful tool to join the dots. The post-war industrialisation and intensification of agriculture - done for good reasons at the time - has caused loss of biodiversity. We should be thinking big – and we need to up the joint-working.”

Georgina Umney, a member of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s ‘Tomorrow’s Natural Leaders programme’, spoke about the impact of climate warming and biodiversity loss on her generation:  “The dreams we had growing up - we can’t face them, because of the overwhelming climate crisis,” she said. She spoke of the opportunities for National Park Authorities and other bodies to do more to enable young people to get involved in conservation.  National Parks could feel like ‘stagnant’ places for young people, as they were often marketed as ‘places to visit, not places to touch or influence’.

Weekend of activity to tackle bird of prey persecution - North Yorkshire Police

logo: Operation owlThis weekend (21 – 22 September) North Yorkshire will be leading a national Operation Owl awareness campaign to seek the public’s support in tackling illegal bird of prey persecution.

Activity across the weekend aims to raise public awareness of bird of prey persecution – how to spot the signs, record any instances and report it to the police.

Launched in February 2018, Operation Owl is a joint initiative by North Yorkshire Police, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA), together with the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. The initiative set out to raise awareness of raptor persecution, encouraging the public to be vigilant for signs of this criminal activity, and to report suspicious activity to the police.

In June this year, Operation Owl was rolled out nationally and this awareness weekend will be the first event of its kind outside of North Yorkshire.

More than 25 police forces across the length and breadth of the UK are currently signed up to take part in awareness raising activity, joining with North Yorkshire to take a stand against bird of prey persecution.

Head of the UK National Wildlife Crime Unit, Chief Inspector Lou Hubble OBE, said: "Tackling Raptor Persecution is a UK Wildlife Crime Priority.  I am deeply frustrated that we continue to see some of our most iconic birds being persecuted including Golden eagles, Red kites, Buzzards and Goshawks.  It's 2019 and here in the UK Hen Harriers are close to extinction through continued persecution.  We need to make these crimes socially unacceptable in all communities.  Please be our eyes and ears on the ground and report anything suspicious to the Police."

"Thermal Imaging: Bat Survey Guidelines" published - Bat Conservation Trust

Dr Kayleigh Fawcett has recently published guidelines in association with Bat Conservation Trust on Thermal Imaging for Bat Surveys. These are primarily intended for use by ecological consultants surveying for bats; however, the methods described can also be applied to bat conservation and research. The document is also intended to inform those assessing and evaluating the results of thermal imaging bat surveys, including local government ecologists, planning officers and government officials, among others. One of the aims of this document is to give stakeholders a better understanding of thermal imaging, and how it can and should be applied, in order to create meaningful survey results. click hereto download a copy


New Study Finds U.S. and Canada Have Lost More Than One In Four Birds in the Past 50 Years - 3 Billion Birds .org

 Data show that since 1970, the U.S. and Canada have lost nearly 3 billion birds, a massive reduction in abundance involving hundreds of species, from beloved backyard songbirds to long-distance migrants.

A study published today (19/9/19) in the journal Science reveals that since 1970, bird populations in the United States and Canada have declined by 29 percent, or almost 3 billion birds, signaling a widespread ecological crisis. The results show tremendous losses across diverse groups of birds and habitats — from iconic songsters such as meadowlarks to long-distance migrants such as swallows and backyard birds including sparrows.

“Multiple, independent lines of evidence show a massive reduction in the abundance of birds,” said Ken Rosenberg, the study’s lead author and a senior scientist at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and American Bird Conservancy. “We expected to see continuing declines of threatened species. But for the first time, the results also showed pervasive losses among common birds across all habitats, including backyard birds.”

The study notes that birds are indicators of environmental health, signaling that natural systems across the U.S. and Canada are now being so severely impacted by human activities that they no longer support the same robust wildlife populations.

The findings show that of nearly 3 billion birds lost, 90 percent belong to 12 bird families, including sparrows, warblers, finches, and swallows — common, widespread species that play influential roles in food webs and ecosystem functioning, from seed dispersal to pest control.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has released details of new general licences to control some wild birds in Wales. - Natural Resources Wales

The licences themselves will be published on NRW’s website on Monday 7 October and this follows a two-week window which will allow licence holders to consider which of the new licences they will need.

The new licences mean that people who need to use lethal methods to control wild birds can do so legally – and they will need to make sure they comply with the new licences as the old ones will no longer be valid from the 7 October. They could be breaking the law if they kill or take birds using their old general licences.

All wild birds are protected by law, but in certain circumstances lethal controls can be used when all other non-lethal options have failed or been proven not to work.

However, legal advice showed the old licences were not lawful and had to be changed.

The licensing system has two main strands – general licences and specific licences.

General licences can be used to control bird species to protect public health and safety, to prevent serious agricultural damage and disease, and to protect other wildlife. These will continue to be the licences most people use.

The main change to the general licences is that users no longer need to confirm that they have tried all other non-lethal methods of control because NRW, after reviewing all the evidence, is now satisfied that no other methods work effectively in these circumstances.

On the 7 October 2019, we will make some important changes to general licences for wild bird control. We have removed some bird species and changed the activities covered by the licence. We recommend that users review the new licences so that they understand the changes.
