The spring field meeting will be based in the Oxfordshire Fens and Wytham Woods. The sites involved are Wytham Woods (in collaboration with Dr Liam Crowley, Oxford Univ), Chilswell Valley LWS, Hinksey Heights Fen LWR and Cothill. This is a great chance to visit some interesting and, in the case of Cothill, outstanding sites. See articles by Judy Webb in the conservation sections of past Bulletins for information about the fens and some of the species that can be seen there. We are grateful to Judy for assisting with access to these sites.

Participants will need to organise their own accommodation for this meeting. There is a Travelodge on the Abingdon Road in Oxford city that is 1.5 mile south of the city centre and well-served by buses into town. There are also numerous B&Bs along the Abingdon Road and in Kennington.

Those planning to attend and/or wanting further details should contact Mark Welch.
