Please wear long sleeves, long trousers and gloves as protection against stinging nettles and blackberry thorns. If you can only come later than 10am then please come and find us in the areas described.

Spring Bird Walk 2017

Paul Highman led 15 of us around the Nature Reserve on a cold bright calm morning, starting at 6 am.

A total of 30 species were seen/heard, including numerous warblers.

The highlights were a large flock of Sand Martins feeding over the river close to their nesting bank, and a magnificently coloured male Bullfinch in bright sunlight at the top of an ash tree.
