Watlington Nature Walk (1804)

Thursday 22 Oct ~ 8:00 AM

Steven Gozdz of GG Wildlife Walks is a lover of wildlife, particularly birds, as well as a wildlife photographer. He operates a number of wildlife walking routes in The Chilterns area, and will be leading this walk. This is an earlier start than some walks, but generally earlier is better for seeing an array of birdlife and wildlife. The route takes in some wonderful scenery of chalk downland, beech woodlands and ancient pathways. It follows a stretch of the Oxfordshire Way up towards Christmas Common, returning via the chalk pits and a stretch of the Ridgeway National Trail.

This event is part of the Watlington Nature Festival.

Further Information

Would suggest bringing binoculars to make the most of the wildlife spotting. If you don’t have any, these can be hired if you wish at £2.50 per pair rather than investing in some before you have tried them - please contact info@goringgapwildlifewalks.co.uk after booking.
