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.
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.
Summer is here! Birds are on the wing, insects are buzzing around, meadows are coming into bloom, and people are getting out and enjoying the sunshine. Summer is a great time to enjoy the hard work we put into sites all-year round.
Staff at The Royal Star & Garter Home in High Wycombe have helped clean up a
stretch of the Hughenden Stream as part of a community project.
They donned wellies to pick out bottles, crisp packets, cigarette ends and other
rubbish from the part of the stream running behind the new care home, which
will welcome its first residents this month (April).
