Join us for a trip to the Wildmoor Heath BBOWT Nature Reserve: a precious remnant of rare and fragile lowland heath. It is situated on a slope and offers visitors a wonderful range of habitats and views, from wet and dry lowland heath and valley bog, to mature pine and broadleaved woodland. It supports a variety of less common plants and animals including many heathland and bog specialists.

We will take a gentle stroll across the heath and boardwalks searching for one of the most restricted range butterflies in the UTB area. We should also see a wide variety of other wildlife. Target species: Silver-studded Blue and other butterflies of heathland and the wider countryside.

Accessibility & risks: mainly firm, gently sloping, sandy paths; some boggy peat; rough underfoot in places, can be muddy; gates, stiles and boardwalks. Please check for ticks after the walk and let the leader know if you have picked up any ticks. (Tick advice)


Please check here the evening before the walk to make sure it is going ahead as planned. This page will be updated regularly.

Meet at the reserve car park a short distance south of 71 Sandhurst Road, Crowthorne.
