The Greatest Singer Under Threat

The greatest singer of all the birds is under threat.

The nightingale is revered for the beauty of its song.

But the nightingale – having suffered a catastrophic drop in numbers in recent years – is now in trouble.

The best site in Britain for protecting the songbird – at Lodge Hill in Medway, Kent – is under threat of destruction.

Its loss could deal an irreparable blow to the nightingale in the UK and open the floodgates to commercial exploitation of hundreds of other protected environmental sites across the country.
