Flowers and insects galore - report from evening walk 22 June

We had an excellent walk last week with Rupert Higgins of Wessex Ecological Consultants - he really made us look at the meadows in particular with new eyes.

Left is a bee orchid that we found in the Lower Meadow.

Our next event will be an afternoon Biodiversity Walk on Sunday 18 July, starting at 2pm from the Shire Way gate.

Experts in all sorts of flora and fauna will help us learn more about this fascinating area.

Please come and join us - no need to book, just turn up!
