Visit to Paxton Pits on Saturday 14 February 2009
There is a useful website at http://www.paxton-pits.org.uk/
The best route from Abington seems to be M11 North to Junction 13, then on to A1303 Westbound and join A428.
Take the B1428 for St Neots; ignore right turn for Great Paxton but take B1041 for Little Paxton. We understand there are then signs in Little Paxton for Paxton Pits where there is Parking and a Visitor Centre.
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.
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: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=213774935674882866424.00000111dca2be9f06ab8&z=13>
