Chatter box Two important sites for waterfowl in Essex have been given the strongest possible environmental protection, Defra has announced.

Allfleet’s Marsh and Brandy Hole, which are part of the Crouch and Roach estuaries, are now Special Protection Areas (SPA) and Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). They were also designated Ramsar wetland of international importance.

Both sites provide suitable habitat for internationally important wintering water birds, including dark-bellied brent geese, lapwing, shoveler and golden plover, among many waterfowl species.

New Animal Medicines Best Practice Programme launched

A new Animal Medicines Best Practice Programme (AMBP) has been launched by the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) to enable a coordinated and consistent approach to farmer training in the responsible use of antibiotics.

The programme comes in response to demand from the food supply chain for appropriate training. It provides materials for vets and farmers alike that satisfy farm assurance requirements such as the Red Tractor recommendations.

The new training is available via the NOAH website or through the online eLearning platform Lantra .
