Free guided nature walk

A FREE family event is being held at Titchmarsh Local Nature Reserve tomorrow.

A walk will take place around Wetland Wonders from 10am until midday.

The walk will led by the Wildlife Trust and Natural England.

A spokesman for the trust said: “Visitors will be able to take a glimpse at some of the over-wintering birds that make the Upper Nene Gravel Pits special protection area so important.

“People will be able to learn about the conservation work that is happening along the Nene Valley and future plans to make it even more special for wildlife.”

RSPB Midlands regional director Steve Holliday said: “It’s wonderful to be celebrating the Nene Valley as one of the best sites in the UK for nature and as an area so many local people can enjoy.

“It highlights the potential for mineral sites to restore lost habitats and play a vital part in bringing wildlife back to the Midlands.”

Participants should meet at 10am at the Titchmarsh Nature Reserve car park, near Aldwincle.

The walk is 2.4 miles in length and on uneven ground. No booking is required.
