Did you know that there is a nature reserve in the heart of Bradley Stoke, home to an astonishing variety of wildlife and right on your doorstep?
A local nature conservation group is inviting residents to join them on a guided walk around the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve this coming Saturday (11th June), as part of the Bradley Stoke Community Festival celebrations.
The walk will be led by a professional ecologist who will introduce you to the different habitats on the reserve and to the wildlife that depends on them. By the end of it you will be able to tell your cinnabar caterpillars from a cabbage white, learn why teasels are important to both goldfinches and billiard tables, and know why you shouldn’t eat anything with purple spots.
The group says it can’t predict in advance exactly what you will see (or hear) but promises a fascinating insight into the natural world.
The walk, which is free and open to everyone, commences from outside the Leisure Centre at 10am and will finish by 1pm, in plenty of time for you to join in the festival fun at the Jubilee Centre.
It will be conducted at a “fairly leisurely pace” and will mainly take place on surfaced paths, but please be aware that it will also take in the reserve’s woodlands and grasslands so terrain will be uneven and suitable footwear should be worn.
