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 to explore Emberton Country Park. Followed by a walk to the centre of Olney and a fish & chips picnic in the Market Square.

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