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 quintessential English village of Clifton Reynes, a lovely walk across the fields to the historical town of Olneywill follow. We will stop in Olney for fish & chips picnic supper at the town’s market square. A walk back to Clifton Reynes will finish with a stop for drinks at  Robin Hood pub.      

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