“Every minute was magical… to be sat there with a Kestrel, a real live Kestrel, my own real live Kestrel on my wrist! I felt like I’d climbed through a hole in heaven’s fence”.
We have, since our spin out in 2013, been putting in a great deal of effort time and funding to improving this urban oasis into a nature reserve our town can be proud of. Created by Frances Alexander during her time as town mayor in 1998/99, it’s small at just 2 acres but it packs a mighty wildlife punch especially when you consider it is only a mile from the town centre.

Nearly 70 people – including many school children, Thames Valley Police, The Rotary Club, Wycombe’s Mayor and Chiltern Rangers – took part in a massive bulb planting session yesterday in High Wycombe town centre.
