Wildflower Walk - 24 June 2018
Warbler Walk - 6 May 2018
Heron and Egret Watch - 25 Mar 2018
Wildfowl Walk - 11 Feb 2018
Unlike last year we had bright sunshine even if it was a bit windy and on the cool side of comfortable. So it was a pleasant morning walk for the 5 of us. Surprisingly given that it had rained all day the day before birds generally were conspicuous by their absence Again without some really cold weather up north bird numbers on the lake remain low. But it does not explain the lack of birds among the trees.
Wildfowl Walk - 14 Jan 2018
There were 6 of us plus me this year. It was dull but calm and not too cold. The poor light made identifying the birds a bit tricky. There were not a great many birds on the lake or in the trees in the surrounding area. We saw all the species we heard and ended with a tally of 35 species (half a dozen up on last year).
Butterfly & Dragonfly Walk - 13 Aug 2017
A beautiful sunny day attracted 10 attendees for the 2017 Dragonfly and Butterfly walk. We were very fortunate to have Damien Weller, the Three Rivers District Council Park ranger, with us carrying his sweep net and bug examination pots. This gave us the opportunity to see some dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies close up. As usual all attendees were on the lookout for flying animals as well as some non-flying ones.
