Walton Common

With Jenny Greenwood and David Hawkins.

A repeat visit to this Avon Wildlife Trust limestone grassland reserve which we last visited in June 2014 when we specifically looked at the variety of roses. Since that time, Avon Wildlife Trust have undertaken significant management, including the reintroduction of grazing. There are now more open areas and the pre-existing ones have been enlarged.

It will be interesting to see what new (or returning) species we can observe. The site is also very good for butterflies. Park on the wide road verge on Walton Street, around ST42317360. For Satnav users, BS21 7AP will put you on the right road. Further details about the reserve can be found at https://www.avonwildlifetrust.org.uk/nature-reserves/walton-common.
