A strong relationship between CEMEX UK and the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has seen Attenborough quarry evolve into a stunning 145-hectare nature reserve with an award-winning visitor centre.
The partnership goes back 50 years to days when Attenborough became the Trust’s first reserve. As its watery environment has grown, so too has its population of bird species, which include the bittern, grass hopper warbler, great crested grebe, lapwing and oystercatcher. Attenborough is also strategically located to join up other “Living Landscape” initiatives which include plans to provide osprey nesting opportunities along the Trent Valley.
Species benefitting include: bittern and grass hopper warbler, great crested grebe, lapwing, shoveler, goosander, pochard and oystercatcher.
