Farmland Bird Project wins award
The Bowland Award is awarded annually by the National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (NAAONB) for “the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs)”.
This evening, with a vote taken by their peers, Cranborne Chase AONB Partnership’s South Wiltshire Farmland Birds Project was announced as this year’s recipient.
The Award was presented to Tracy Adams, South Wiltshire Farmland Birds Project Manager. Michael Mounde, Chairman of the Cranborne Chase AONB, said,
“I am absolutely delighted that the South Wiltshire Farmland Birds Project has been honoured and recognised in this way. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of Tracy Adams, but also to our partners: the farmers, who create the birds’ habitat and Wessex Water plc who provide funding for the work.”
NAAONB Chairman, Mr Philip Hygate said “The South Wiltshire Farmland Birds Project is a very worthy winner of the Bowland Award and it is fitting that this year’s recipient is a project that has contributed an outstanding environmental contribution to the well-being of the Cranborne Chase AONB, by sharing, learning and inspiring. I congratulate them on their achievements”.
