Save Lodge Hill

The following is my facebook post which I have shared in order to raise awareness and get as many signatures as possible on a Petition in order to stop the destruction of this vitally important Nightingale habitat.
I would urge my followers to search 'Save Lodge Hill' on facebook and sign the petition.  Developers must not be allowed to build on this site, a site which will ensure to significantly impact on Nightingale numbers in the UK.
 
Thank you all in advance.
 
My post reads as follows: 
 
SAVE LODGE HILL: This shared post relates to the proposed development of land in North Kent on land which holds the UK's largest concentration of Nightingales. Yet another development which if given the go ahead would singularly impact si...gnificantly on the UK's remaining population of Nightingales.
The developers have said they will create new habitat for Nightingales, this is extremely short sighted and aimed at people who know little about birds, the developers probably want the public to fall into the trap and say "well, that's OK then".
Nightingale habitats are old, well established sites which may take decades to become suitable for occupation, by which time the developers have done their bit to ensure the extinxtion of this bird from the UK.
Please sign this on-line petition in order to save this site, and then share with your friends....Thank you very much my friends.
