As promised - I'll leave it to Carrie to circulate access to these via the google group........
Otters are certainly present on Clyne stream and I would be very surprised if pipestrelle, long eared and noctule bats were not using the meadows behind Clyne Cottages (although the first two of these species can co-exist quite happily with housing - breeding in roof spaces - so it would be better to focus on otter and noctule - which roosts in old trees).
The farmland above North Killay is used by both yellowhammer and linnet - and as mentioned in my last email I will try to find out what sort of breeding records there are  for these and other bird species................Brian

Hi Carrie,
Thanks for the species info - most useful. Also, CVCP joined in some bat surveys last year, so Kate's probably got details. Also ref. otters.
And - when walking near the lake on 15 April, 8pm, we heard sound of the cuckoo. According to Radio 4 prog., cuckoos are becoming very rare, and we haven't heard one for years in fact.
Cheers from Nesta and John

Further to our discussion yesterday evening I have been going through Planning Policy Wales

which provides the main framework for the development of the LDP.

I think that there are relevant sections relating to biodiversity, archeology and housing location (which I will follow up), but the most powerful paragraph seems to me to be:

11.1.11 Formal and informal open green spaces, including parks with significant recreational or amenity value, should be protected from development, particularly in urban areas where they fulfil multiple purposes, not only enhancing the quality of life, but contributing to biodiversity, the conservation of nature and landscape, air quality and the protection of groundwater. Such open spaces also have a role in climate protection and in enabling the adaptation of urban areas to the impacts of climate change, for example by contributing to flood management and helping to reduce urban heat island effects.

Best wishes
