I HAVE WITNESSED THE DESTRUCTION OF HUNDREDS OF COLONIES WITHIN THE FRENSHAM COMMON AREAS  WHERE THE HEATH AND SAND DUNES WERE  FLATTENED OUT IN THE EARLY 1960s  TO MAKE WAY FOR PINE PLANTATIONS AND ITS STILL HAPPENING TODAY UP THE ROAD  AT HANKLEY COMMON WHERE THEY ARE LOSING HABITAT DUE TO THE EVER ENCROACHING GOLF LINKS  THAT ARE CUTTING HUGE SWATHES OUT OF THE HEATHER  I SEE LAST YEAR 2006 & IN 2004 WHERE A FEW COLONIES STILL EXISTED. ALAS NO LONGER . BUT THERE ARE STILL SOME SPOTS WITH  ISOLATED COLONIES WITHIN THE CONFINES OF KETTLEBURY HILL & YAGDEN  AREA  ( WHERE YOU TAKE  THE RISK OF BEING SHOT ON SITE BY THE SAS FOR LURKING AROUND HIGHLY SENSITIVE UNISEX ARMY POSTS THAT DOMINATE THE SITES  )  BUT FOR HOW LONG ?  AS A PROTECTED SPECIES HOW CAN ENGLISH NATURE WHO I REPORTED THIS  ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE ITS OBVIOUSE THEY DONT GIVE STUFF BUT CONTINUE TO BE A FUNDED NON EFECTIVE QUANGO ON PROJECTS THAT SUIT THE PC HEALTH & SAFETY DESK WALLERS THAT DONT EVEN GET OUT TO VISIT THE SITES  THAT ARE DISSAPEARING FOR EVER  . .       &nbs p;& ; ; ;am p;am p;am p;am p;nb sp;     FROM  KEITH BENNETT AGILIS39141.0759606482
