BBOWT heralds ‘The Return of the Skylark’

We are happy to announce that our talks at Great Missenden Memorial Centre will continue in October, November and December. On Tuesday 19 October at 7.45pm Nick Marriner of the Chilterns Conservation Board will present a double act with Will Lacey, a local farmer. They will review what has been achieved so far with the ‘Chalk, Cherries and Chairs’ project, for example in surveys that record the return of some of our formerly common farmland birds like the skylark. Then they’ll look at what the future holds for farmers, wildlife and the general public under the new environmental regime. Doors open at 7pm for coffee and an opportunity to socialise. Admission is £5 including refreshments and a raffle ticket.

On Sunday 17 October we invite you to our traditional Plant and Produce Market at College Lake (HP23 5QG) from 11am till 1pm. We shall feature a great variety of plants mostly donated by members and sold at highly competitive prices for BBOWT funds – enquiries to John Catton ( please.

Our reserves remain open daily and free of access except for College Lake which is open everyday except Monday from 10am till 4pm and where we request a small donation from visitors. Enjoy the autumn colours at Dancersend (HP23 6LB) and come to Mick Jones’s talk about the reserve on Tuesday 23 November.
