Field Trip to Cotswold Water Park, Wilts
Forthcoming Field Trip to Cotswold Water Park, Wilts on 25th November2018
The start time for this walk is 0930. From the A419 between Swindon and Cirencester take the B4696 (also known as the Spine Road) westwards for about 2.5km. Take Fridays Ham Lane southwards for about 1 km. Take the first turning on the left (a narrow road) for about ½ km. On a bend there is roadside parking near a small viewing area. This area is known as Twitchers Gate. Winter wildfowl numbers will be building up at this time as well as the number of other winter visitors such as Thrushes. Should be interesting.
