Join local resident and the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust Reserves Ecology Officer, Colin Williams, for a gentle wildlife walk from Sandford Lock, and along the River Thames to Iffley Meadows to enjoy the annual spectacular show of Snakes-head Fritillaries – the county flower of Oxfordshire. Last year we counted over 80,000 flowering fritillaries and they should be at their peak for our visit.

To sign up for the Talking Shop fundraising walk, please email Colin at The minimum donation is £2 per person.

We will meet at Sanford Lock at 08:30 on Sunday 19th April and the walk will finish at Iffley Meadows at about 10:30. Colin will remain at Iffley Meadows to work at a BBOWT event so feel free to explore the meadows further or return to Sandford Lock along the river.

As well as enjoying the fritillaries we hope to see a diversity of birds, plants and butterflies and Colin will talk about the wildlife he has discovered in our local area.
