Nature reserve to open its doors
HAMPTON’S nature reserve will be opened up to the public for a series of walks taking place over the next few weeks.
The reserve is normally closed to residents, but the walks will give wildlife lovers the chance to explore the area, with the help of staff from amphibian charity Froglife, who help run the site.
The walks will have a variety of themes from a general wildlife stroll to walk off your Sunday lunch, to a reptile safari or a walk in the dark to search for nocturnal creatures.
Those who take part will be asked for a donation which will go towards Froglife’s work supporting reptile and amphibian conservation through habitat management, the provision of information and environmental education.
Rebecca Neal from the Froglife education team will be leading the walks and she said she was looking forward to the events.
She said: “I am really looking forward to showing off this amazing site, which is not normally open to the public.
“There is so much to see and it is such an unusual place.”
All of the walks will be designed for people who have a general interest in wildlife so people do not need to be an expert to come along. Hopefully everyone will go home at the end of a walk having seen or learned something new.
The events take place on May 20, June 5, June 9, June 19, June 30 and July 10.
