Walk at Attenborough Nature Reserve
June 29, 2022
As a result of the poor weather on March 30th the day previously scheduled for this event it has been rearranged
Attenborough Nature Reserve was established in 1966 and was opened by Sir David Attenborough. This much loved, nationally important site is best known for its birds with over 160 species recorded, but also provides a home for hundreds of species of plant and insects. It is cited as one of the best places in the UK to see kingfisher and is also home to rare wildlife including bitterns and otters. The reserve attracts around 500,000 visitors each year and holds a special place in the hearts of many – with families having visited for three generations.
We will meet at 11.30 pm and the gentle walk of about 3.5 miles along the flat will need only stout shoes and a change of shoes if muddy. For those who would like a spot of lunch after the walk we will repair to The Corn Mill Pub, Swiney Way, Chilwell, Nottingham, NG9 6GX (this is purely optional). The pub is approximately ½ mile from the Nature Reserve car park and has plenty of free parking.
