New Web Site

This is an attempt to overcome the problem we have had for a while, where people send me things and it takes forever for me to get around to posting them on the web site.

This allows any project team member to post an entry and it allows any and everyone to comment on entries. We moderate the comments and can choose whether or not they are to appear on the site.

The old web pages had some useful information as well as archival value. They are still available.

Project team members should sign up for a Google account and I will be happy to give demonstrations on how to use the system, please just call or e-mail me.

I hope this will give the web site a new lease of life.

The Aims of Abington Naturewatch

At their meeting on 9 April 2005 the members approved this revised version of the aims of Abington Naturewatch:

  • To monitor and record the wildlife (fauna & flora) within the borders of the Abingtons;
  • To encourage protection of our wildlife, maintain its quality and foster its diversity;
  • To promote awareness of the richness, potential and problems of the natural environment of the Abingtons;
  • To cooperate in improving access to the local natural environment for the benefit of all Abington villagers.

Pat Daunt, Founder

The organisation is informal and communication is by email if possible; members are notified of events from time to time. Contact details are maintained by a small "project team". There is currently no membership fee as costs are covered by voluntary contributions at events.

Members are encouraged to report notable sightings of flora and fauna within the Abingtons to the appropriate sector coordinator and an illustrated record is published annually.

A map of the area covered, with some features noted, is available here:>

For more information or to join, please contact David Farrant on (01223) 892871 or Peter Brunning via e-mail

Contributions to our records should be sent to sector contacts or either of the above. Photographs may also be submitted to Andy Merryweather (
