Thu 11 Jul: Evening nature walk and campfire gathering at Gibbets Close Hill

This event is in the past.

Come and join the Wychwood Forest Trust team as we take a walk around Gibbets Close Hill nature reserve on the edge of Witney, our newest acquisition and the site of major rewilding and research projects. At the moment Gibbets is not freely open to the public, so this is your chance to see it early in its rewilding journey and learn about the cutting-edge ecological research being done here to combat biodiversity loss. You will also be able to see the initial phase of a major wetland creation project in progress.

Take in the far-reaching views from the top of the hill and the magnificent veteran oak trees in the hedgerows. Appreciate the variety of wildlife that call this special place their home. Pause for a while in the stillness of the evening and listen to the birdsong, keeping your eyes peeled for the resident barn owls, and try your hand at tracking the movements of bats at dusk, with one of our bat detectors.

And afterwards as the sun goes down and the light fades, gather for a while around the campfire and enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
