Graham will be leading this Sunday's walk to Cropston Reservoir, Swithland Woods and Reservoir, finishing, if you wish, at a Community Centre for coffee or tea just after midday.
The walk starts at 9am. from the lay-by on Reservoir Road (B5330), which is by the weir on the dam just ouside the village of Cropston. Most people will drive through the village of Cropston past the Badgers' Sett pub. I'm reliably informed. The lay-by is actually halfway along the dam at SK551 111.
From the LROS website home page under 'Birding Sites' and then '5. Bradgate Park and Cropston Reservoir'
Postcode is: LE7 7GQ for Reservoir Road.
We can either meet in the lay-by at 9am or at Sapcote at 8.30, but please let me know if you want a lift otherwise I will drive straight to Cropston. Lee will be leaving from Sapcote, but all his seats may be taken by Ellen, Wendy M and Julie. Please can you inform me by 8pm on Saturday evening unless it's an emergency.
Wellies might be needed for Swithland Woods.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. The weather doesn't look too bad at the moment and you never know what we might find. There was a Bonaparte's gull last week!
