Places to visit

Information and news about the spectacular local wildlife and unique local history in and aroud Princes Risborough.

We have now added the full programme for the annual Walking Festival in June, click on the Walking Festival tab above.

Lodge Hill is alive with birdsong. Walk over or around this hill and listen to the song of Blackcaps, Garden Warblers, Whitethroats, Willow Warblers, Song Thrushes, Yellowhammers and Linnets. The Ridgeway Path is a good route to follow over this wonderful hill.

Closer to home bluebells are coming out in the plantation at the top of Brush Hill. Lots of other wildlife to discover too and great views across to the Cotswolds and Berkshire Downs in the clear April skies. Look out for Ravens and Buzzards in amongst the Kites!  Butterflies are busy too and Commas, Holly Blues and Orange Tips can all be seen along the woodland edge.

While marking out the new circular trail around the Stratton Wildlife Meadow yesterday I was serenaded by Chiffchaffs in the trees, Blackcaps in the hedgerow and a drumming Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Above, a Buzzard soared in the thermals. The meadow is carpeted with cowslips, a great omen for the future of ths site. Our new wild hedge is also bursting into leaf !
