About the walk
Once known as one of the worst post industrial sites in Europe and now run by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. A great example of what can be done with old brownfield spaces. A mix of grassland, woodland, river and wetland, this site can offer some wonderful birds. I have recorded over 100 species here, including Yellowhammer, Stonechat and Willow Tit. I have been visiting for almost 20 years. The walk is around 7km and will start on the Country Park where grassland is the main habitat, then take a look at the Reedbed wetland area and the Duck Marsh. We will then walk in woodland along the River Rother before returning to the Country Park.
If you need to cancel for any reason please let me know within 24 hours. I am happy to reschedule for another day.
