Retford Notts Wildlife Trust walk

by | 1 May 2017 | Retford, Wildlife

The annual Tim Bowles walk, organised by the Retford Group of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, takes place at Gamston Wood on Sunday 7th May from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. This annual wildlife walk, in memory of the much-loved warden and also founding headmaster of Bramcote School in Gamston, will be led by Rob Atkinson, Northern Reserves Officer for the Trust.

Gamston Wood, which is one of the 67 reserves looked after by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, is important not only for its variety of deciduous trees, but also for its ground flora, including bluebells, wood anemone, herb paris, sweet woodruff, wood avens and sanicle. Over twenty species of butterfly have also been recorded there.

The entrance to Gamston Wood is midway on the minor road from Eaton to Upton, south of Retford. There is a small car parking area. No booking is required and there is no charge for the walk.
