About the event

We will be taken by Brian Sims who will be able to help us identify the variety of species we will see. Marston Thrift is an ancient woodland that has developed a unique wildlife community. Adjacent to this is Rectory Wood an area of former arable land that was bought by The Forest of Marston Vale who are involved in the planting and further development of the site.
