North Notts Local Group of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust

by | 1 July 2022 | Retford, Wildlife

With the summer weather prompting us to get outdoors and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, the North Notts Local Group of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has a programme of outdoor activities and walks in mind.

The first is a guided walk in the Daneshill Lakes Reserve. This is a lovely reserve, managed by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. It has a wide range of habitats and lots of wildlife, including many wildflowers and an impressive list of birds. The reserve also has an interesting history, having been the site of a royal ordnance factory, built during the war to manufacture explosives and ammunition and, at one time, employing 2,000 people.

The walk will be led by Brian Horne who volunteers on the reserve and is very knowledgeable about its history and wildlife. Numbers will necessarily be limited so, if you want to go, it’s important to book your place!

The first walk will be on Sunday 3rd July from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. Other dates are not yet fixed so please get in touch if you’re interested as extra walks may be arranged. There is also the possibility of cups of tea and cake by the lake at the end of the walk. Perfect for a summer afternoon!
