THANKS to the amaz­ing gen­eros­ity of mem­bers of the lo­cal Wildlife Trust (BBOWT), and many other peo­ple who have given to the Yoes­den Bank ap­peal, we have pur­chased this wildlife site.

Yoes­den is high in the Chilterns where wild flow­ers and but­ter­flies abound on the chalk grass­land. Above this is the ‘hanger’ wood­land that this week is all shades of golden brown, rus­set red and dark green.

The leaves of beech, ash and white­beam trees are fall­ing to the ground, leav­ing the deep green nee­dles of yew trees and leaves of glossy-ber­ried hol­lies to be­come the eye-catch­ers.

Estelle Bai­ley, BBOWT chief ex­ec­u­tive, is thrilled that Yoes­den will be pro­tected.

She said: “The gen­eros­ity of BBOWT mem­bers and ev­ery­one who has do­nated to the ap­peal is stag­ger­ing.
