P.S - the ribbons have now been removed from the Mill Field, but don't let that stop you exploring if you missed out on the trail. I spied some lovely dew covered spiders webs, spindle berries and a cormorant flying over when I visited this morning.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for everybody who has engaged with this - a total of 34 people requested the pdf guide, which is amazing, and I have had some really helpful feedback to help me improve when I roll more trails out next year.

Do get in touch to let me know how you got on - any comments or feedback you would be happy for me to share on my facebook page would be particularly appreciated.

Keep your eyes peeled for more next year!

Hi Katherine,

Please could you send me a copy of your PDF file. I'll go along tomorrow at some point.

Great idea, thank you :-)

Dear Katherine,

What a wonderful initiative, and would love to get your pdf as I do not have Facebook, but would love to take a walk round on Sunday. 

Also love the sound of explorer based trails for elsewhere in Charlbury, and would love to chat to you about the other plans you have.

Many thanks

Anne

Last chance to do the Wildlife Explorer Trail this weekend!

I'll be taking the ribbons down on Monday.

Hope you have enjoyed getting out and exploring the Mill Field - I look forward to hearing what you have seen!

Thanks to all those who have taken part in the walk so far! Do let me know what wildlife you have seen either here or via my Facebook page, and if you have any feedback for when I polish the process and roll the walks out next year.

If you don't have Facebook and would still like to do the walk then feel free to message me via this website and I can hopefully send the PDF over that way.

I saw a treecreeper and a beautiful male bullfinch in the Mill Field on the weekend. The water is high in the river but the field is surprisingly not that muddy despite the rain so well worth a visit in between the showers.

What a fastastic initiative Katherine.  Really welcome this trail to help people appreciate the wildlife that we have in Charlbury and this focus on the Mill Field as a readily accesible public space is great.  I am sure that many will take this up especially under current circumstances. Well done indeed.

Thank you Katherine. This is a splendid initiative especially during lockdown #2.

Wishing you well for when you can roll this out for all the natural spaces that this town is lucky enough to control. Your project could give double benefit : you can earn a modest income and our residents can learn about the fantastic natural environment that surrounds us. A perfect synergy!

I am a Charlbury based ecologist hoping to set up a number of nature based projects next year, one of which is a series of self-guided Wildlife Explorer Trails. However given we’re now in lockdown #2, I thought there might be some slightly bored Charlbury residents out there who would appreciate a free taster during their daily exercise!

If you would like to explore the Mill Field using the ribbons I’ve set out to show the way for the Trail (if you can find all 7 that is!) then head to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rediscovernature1/ and send me a message. I’ll send you a free PDF guide. (Many thanks to the Town Council for their support on this.) The trail is only temporary and I will be removing the ribbons in a week or two depending on demand.

N.B. Please follow government guidelines regarding group sizes / social distancing etc, and don’t park along the roads adjacent to the Mill Field.

Many thanks!

Katherine Holmes
