Despite the showery weather, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trusts Walk 4 Wildlife went storming ahead in the Golden Valley between Stroud and Cirencester. TV wildlife expert Mike Dilger opened the walk with a speech enthusing that this is the best time of year to get out and about and see wildlife. He led the first walk, along with Trust Chief Executive, Dr Gordon McGlone, offering advice on species identification and offering behind-the-scenes gossip from BBC TVs The One Show! Mike even took the time to join Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust as a member and to speak to some of the children on the walk.
Almost 400 adults, children and dogs from all around the county turned up to trek the five miles around four stunning Wildlife Trust nature reserves. Their spirits werent dampened by the weather and everyone had a lovely time. After the walk they were rewarded with medals even the dogs! and live music and childrens entertainment continued at the Daneway Inn.
Thank you to all who took part!
