Following our Bring & Take in the morning, we’ll be re-launching the beautiful Kingfisher Corner wildlife site with a little party. Come along with friends and family to build bird and bat boxes, sow seeds, play games and bash some balsam!

We’ve been working with Oxford City Council and Councillor Susanna Pressel, following our ecological survey of the site in October, to design and put into action a management plan for the lovely space that is Kingfisher Corner.

Brambles have already been cut back, and seeds will be sown – and YOU can get involved!

Details of our plans, with the survey results, are on the blog.

Conservation Volunteers: reserve maintenance @ Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve
Apr 28 all-day
Conservation Volunteers: reserve maintenance @ Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve | Aston Rowant | England | United Kingdom

Our April visit to this important National Nature Reserve in the Chilterns. It’s a site that includes important chalk grassland grazed by flocks of sheep. At this time of year we might be looking after the sheep themselves, improving conditions for the flora and fauna special to the site, or maintaining good public access along the various paths. Full details will be in the weekly OCV email (sign up on the website).

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am

or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer.

Check the website or the OCV weekly email for last minute details or changes, and to find out the exact location.

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!
