Simon King, Bill Oddie, Aubrey Manning and The Wildlife Trusts Join HOOT!

Simon King, Bill Oddie, Aubrey Manning and chief executive of The Wildlife Trusts, Stephanie Hilborne joined members of Hands Off Our Triangle at Gunnersbury Triangle nature reserve today to celebrate The Wildlife Trusts’ centenary.

Simon King found time to speak about the Colonial Drive threat. He celebrated the value of urban nature reserves and marvelled that places like Gunnersbury Triangle had such a wild feeling. As he’d walked around he’d heard Long-tailed Tits and songbirds like the Chiffchaff and Blackcap – here he paused, and a Blackcap sang as if on cue!
