The Wildlife and Wildlife Sites of Rushcliffe

I have direct knowledge of the mammals, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, moths, grasshoppers, crickets, dragonflies, fish, damselflies, birds and vascular plants that occur here and this has been supplemented by data from published sources. For other insect orders, the data has almost entirely been abstracted from internet data sources. Jerry Clough has kindly provided the data on plant galls. I am indebted to Dave Wood for his patience and generosity in passing on every ounce of botanical information that I could possibly absorb and for his companionship on a great many (>150) days out together in south Notts and beyond.

A People's Manifesto for Wildlife contains a lot of food for thought and ideas for action.

Cotgrave Forest Guided Walk

Join me for my next walk around Cotgrave Forest on Sunday 20th October 2019.

Meet at 08:30 at the bend on Laming Gap Lane where there is limited parking. The walk is a leisurely 4km (approx) and we should return by about 11:30. Parts can be very muddy. Note the earlier time due to a mistake in NWT What's On guide.
