Tewkesbury Nature Reserve Visit
July 14 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Come along for a walk in Tewkesbury Nature Reserve for a chance to relax and immerse yourself in the natural world.
The reserve is a 44-hectare urban floodplain site, made up of a mixture of floodplains and pasture.
The key features of the site include the River Swilgate which runs through the reserve, a diverse
wildflower meadow in the northern corner, a community orchard full of pear and apple trees, a sustainable drainage system that help purify local waters from pollutants, and a series of reed beds and scrapes which provide the perfect habitat for breeding birds.
The nature reserve contains a diverse range of wildlife and has even had otters recorded here. Some of the reserve’s most charismatic species that you are likely to spot include the reserve’s resident heron named Dave, a little egret, and a broad range of butterfly, dragonfly, and damselfly species. While here you will be sure to bump into the cattle and sheep which graze on the reserve, and the many ducks and swans that nest here, and if you are lucky, you might even see some of the ducklings and goslings which have just been born.
Joining is simple. All you need to do is book a place and we will email you the links for each session that you need to click at the relevant time and date (you might need to check your spam and junk mail folder).
