Listen to the rambling burbling songs of warblers in the reedbed, catch wafts of water mint leaves crushed underfoot, be amazed by the delicate pink flowers of the early marsh orchid, and marvel at the aerobatic manoeuvres of dragonflies.

What better way to start off summer than by delighting in the sights and sounds of the fens!

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust invites you to explore Weston Turville Reservoir on Sunday 7 June from 10am to 12pm, with wildlife expert Diccon Proctor, a Developing Green Talent trainee with the Trust.

“This fenland nature reserve is fascinating because it is home to unusual wildlife that have specially adapted to live in and around the reedbeds,” says Diccon, who is the volunteer warden at Weston Turville Reservoir. “The walk on Sunday is a rare chance to look behind the scenes, and visit parts of the nature reserve that are not usually open to the public.”

Book your place on the Fascinating Features of the Fen walk at www.bbowt.org.uk/whats-on. Bring your camera and binoculars if you have them to make the most of this wildlife experience, and wear Wellingtons or sturdy boots as some paths may be muddy.
