A world famous Suffolk nature reserve which believes it is under threat from plans for a new nuclear power station has won a top accolade from Britain’s birdwatchers. RSPB Minsmere has been voted Site of the Year in the Birdwatch Magazine/Birders’ Choice Awards for 2019. The reserve, home to more than 5,000 species, was awarded the honour because of its vast range of rare and unusual habitats and birds, including marsh harrier and bittern. The news comes despite the worries over potential detrimental environmental impacts of the proposed new Sizewell C project, which will border the flagship nature reserve. RSPB officers are delighted with the award.
