Yesterday afternoon I spent an enjoyable couple of hours leading a group of over 30 people around the nature reserves of Bradlaugh Fields in the centre of Northampton. The participants were a combination of members of the Northants Natural History Society and local residents who regularly use the park.
We discussed the ecology of the area, focussing on the plants and how they are pollinated. It was great to see such a range of ages on the walk, and a pleasure to tell them some interesting stories and answer their questions. Over at the Bradlaugh Fields Visitor blog, Serena (who took the picture above and who organised the event) has a fuller account of the day.
