As the forest rides are in a very muddy condition, we will stick to roads, tracks and cycle-paths for Saturday’s field trip to Bolderwood. Hence, stout shoes, but not wellingtons required. Please note the later than usual meeting time of 1.00 pm as we’ll move on to Blackwater Arboretum later in the afternoon in the hope of catching some hawfinches assembling prior to going to roost. There should be time for a coffee break before heading down to Blackwater, so a flask is recommended. If you just want to join for the Blackwater part of the trip, we expect to meet there at about 3.30 pm.
