This event has already passed.

Event details

Sat, 16/06/2018 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Members of the Weobley & District Branch are invited to HWT’s Sturts Nature Reserve for a tour of the reserve.

Local Branch member, Mike Williams, will guide us round and explain what things can be seen and why the reserve is so special. Steven Higginson, the local grazier, will also tell us about how the reserve is managed using cattle and sheep selectively in the care of this site. The Reserve tour will end at about 4.00 p.m.

Ample Parking will be available at The Vallets, HR3 6DN and O.S. Grid Reference: 341476, about 150 yards from the entrance to Sturts South and 50 yards from the entrance to Sturts East. (i.e. 50 yards south of the turning to Waterloo).

Those who wish to linger are then invited to a very easy walk around the 1.7 acre lake at The Vallets, where committee member Rev. Charles Overton lives. The lake is frequently visited by kingfishers and contains at least eleven species of fish, some of which will be available to view at close quarters.

There is wonderful space for picnics, and tea will be brewed by the lakeside. Bring your own food/seating/rug. Children are welcome but must be supervised and are entirely the responsibility of parents. (note: the water is between 3 and 5 feet deep).

The usual suggested meeting contribution (£2 for members, £3 for non members) will be given to a charity on this occasion.
