We would like to invite you to a guided Summer walk around Snelmore Common Country Park that we manage on behalf of West Berkshire Council.

The heathland is in full bloom during August, and you can see a variety of dragonflies and butterflies on the reserve.

Warburg Nature Reserve

I love Warburg Nature Reserve in Oxfordshire. The woods are really special places in winter with atmospheric misty mornings and plenty of visiting winter birds.
