Indoor Meeting Dancersend: A year in the life

1 Mar 2018 - 19:30 to 22:00

at Wendover Memorial Hall, , Wendover (Lat/Long 51.7662 and -0.739901)

“Dancersend: A year in the life”  presented by Mick Jones

Mick Jones MBE has been volunteer warden at BBOWT’s Dancersend Nature Reserve in the Chilterns for the last 36 years. During that time the reserve has grown from 78 acres to the current 211 acres, making it now the oldest and largest of the Wildlife Trust’s reserves in Buckinghamshire. The varied geology, topography and habitats at the reserve make it extremely rich in wildlife, for some of which it is now the only site in the region. Mick’s interests have developed from birds and plants, through fungi and butterflies, to slime moulds, plant galls, moths and beetles. He will take us through a typical year at Dancersend, showing some of the special wildlife, explaining the management of the reserve and sharing some of its secrets.

The woodlands are home to many birds.  Listen out for the drumming of the great spotted woodpecker and the ‘yaffle’ of the green woodpecker. Tawny owls can be heard hooting in the trees and the ‘pitchou’ call of the marsh tit is commonly heard.
