Walk to Clifton Reynes, Natural History Walks series, July 2011.Photo by Sharon Birkholz.

A repeat from last year’s mini series of special natural history walks led by Alan Nelson (School of Applied Sciences). Alan has in-depth knowledge of fauna and flora; dragonflies in particular. After a short ride to the outskirts of the historical town of Olney, this walk will take us across the fields to the quintessential English village of Clifton Reynes, popular with walkers. After a short stop at the local pub for a drink, we will head back, ending  the walk with a picnic in Emberton Country Park. 

This year the special natural history series are sponsored by the university’s central Energy & Environment Team:
