walking for wildlife...



This weekend we are helping out, at Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's first sponsored 'Walk 4 Wildlife' taking part in one of the most beautiful valleys I know, 'The Golden Valley' between Stroud and Cirencester in the Cotswold's. This is the Trust's first 'Walk 4 Wildlife' and walkers are raising money for the conservation work of the Trust, which ranges from protecting endangered species like the otter, water vole and dormouse to managing 60 nature reserves.

The day starts at 10am from the Daneway Inn, with BBC TV's The One Show's Wildlife Presenter 'Mike Dilger' starting walkers on their way. Walkers can either register in advance or turn up on the day, and all walkers who complete the five mile circular walk will receive a medal, even the dogs will receive their own special 'dog tag'.

There are already over 300 adults, children and dogs registered, and who can blame them, as the countryside and nature reserves they will be walking through, are beautiful at the moment, bluebell woodlands and grasslands full of meadow flowers. Even the weather forecast is looking good! If you are nearby, stop by and say 'Hi', I will be on the registration desk ~ unless I have sneaked off to take pictures!
