RSVP's are closed but will open shortly.
I did this event a couple of years ago and it was a fantastic day, the best shots were later in the day as the sun went down so this will be an afternoon event rather than the whole day this time.
We will visit Kings Meads, walk up to Ware town then back around via the Kings Mead Viaduct (see above image taken by Peter from our last visit).
Kings Meads is 96 hectares of riverside flood meadow. The rivers and ditches that criss-cross the site traditionally flooded every year, but due to falling water levels this now happens less often. This combination of ditches, floodwater and regular grazing has created a rich wetland habitat that is becoming very rare in Britain.
In winter the flooded areas at the base of the chalk bank attract ducks, gulls and waders including good numbers of Teal, wigeon, shoveler, gadwall and snipe. King's Meads is also a key site for wintering stonechats.
But even if we don't see much wildlife we can enjoy the surroundings and a nice walk.
