Leader: Martin Kincaid. I have been asked to show Parks Trust volunteers around Elfield Nature Park on Sat 13th June between 11am and 1pm. I am happy to stay on and give access to Society members between 2 and 5pm.
This is a site usually closed to the public and we have only had 2 previous society visits to it. A rare example of a brownfield site in Milton Keynes that is managed for wildlife. As it is undisturbed and consists of a variety of habitats it is very rich in invertebrates especially and is also good for birds and aquatic plants. We can include some pond dipping, bug hunting and even monitor the newly introduced slow worm population! There should be a variety of orchids and other flowers to enjoy. Access is off Watling Street (V4) via the main gate for the National Bowl. Please note that as the gate needs to be locked, visitors must arrive promptly for 2pm start. Click here for a map.
