A volunteer ‘s story

I joined Chiltern Rangers in October 2018 with the original intention of simply helping restore the watercress beds in the River Wye. Almost a year later, I’ve learnt that being a volunteer has been much more varied and rewarding than I could have imagined.

Bird and Butterfly Wildlife Walk at Bicester

We all love a Winter Scrub Bash with the knowledge that the work we are doing is going to directly benefit wildlife but it can be a shame if we don’t get to visit in the Summer to take a look at what’s about! So we are even more thankful to Gary Beckett (Conservation Officer) and his Commanding Officer at MOD Bicester who welcomed us back on Saturday 13th July for a Bird and Butterfly Wildlife Walk.
