A WILDLIFE haven which is home to one of the UK's most threatened animals is to benefit from an �8,000 grant.
Tewinbury Nature Reserve, near WGC, has been given the money by East Herts Council.

Other wildlife, including bullfinches, yellowhammers and otters will also benefit from this work, while a new hide with improved access for disabled people will also be installed.
