Nature Walk with Mike Anderson

Members of FoRF enjoyed an interesting and highly informative Nature Walk on Saturday 13th May ably led by Mike Anderson. Thanks to Mike for yet another excellent walk this time focusing on trees and woodland. Here’s a few photos for those who couldn’t make it.

Nature Walk

Join our resident expert – Mike Anderson on the first of this year’s Nature Walks. Mike has kindly offered to host a spring walk across the fields and hills.

SATURDAY 13th May 2017

10am (approx 2 hours depending on weather)

Meet at top of Maidenhead as usual

Wear walking gear and appropriate clothing for the weather on the day. If it’s hot you might consider bringing something to drink. Children welcome. Dogs welcome but we won’t wait for you if your friend wanders and needs finding and it’s unlikely we can avoid the cattle which move freely around the reserve.

The walk will involve walking up slopes and through wooded areas but for the less energetic there will be shortcuts we will all meet back together. The walk will visit the reservoir area, Nursery Covert, up through the Welcome Hills side to the bridle path and down through Clopton Park side.

The aim of the walk will be to explore the range of trees in the nature reserve and to point out the distinguishing features of each species. At the same time we are likely to encounter other delights of the reserve and will take time to enjoy those as well.

The walks are FREE – please register your interest by telephoning Giovanni on 01789 290912 or email
