Priddy Mineries/Stock Hill

Saturday, 6th July 10:00-13:00

Leader: Giles Morris (07712 398903)

Meet at Stock Hill car park (ST 548513; BA5 3AS) at 10am. This is on the Old Bristol Road, B3134, about 1 mile south of the Castle of Comfort Inn. From the inn drive south, crossing the B3135, pass the pond on your right and the Forestry Commission car park is on your left, clearly signed.

The area has heathlands, conifer plantation and ponds with marshy margins. We would hope to see a good variety of heath and woodland bird species, but this is also a good area for both reptiles and dragonflies, so there will be much of general interest if the weather is warm. Expect rough paths, but no big hills; there may be muddy patches if the weather has been wet. The walk will finish by 1pm.

Please inform the leader if you intend to join us.
