For the birds

Environmental charity Thames21 has received a grant to research into the possibility of increasing the number of wildlife habitats on the River Thames in London.

The organisation was awarded £92,000 by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation to undertake Project Habitat - a two-year research project that will investigate how the river can be made more attractive to wildlife.

The study, which is scheduled to begin in January next year, will concentrate on central London, where flood defences make it difficult for plants and animals, such as swans, to establish natural habitats.
