The guided walk held on 2nd. June was led by Keith Turton and John Parlby.
With a very bad weather forecast it was of no surprise that only 7 people took part.
After a brief discussion we decided to go ahead with the walk. We walked down to Chapel Bay and on past Stretton Handley school to Woolley village. Here with the skies darkening we headed back to the reservoir. For the last 30 minutes we had the threatened rain, but not too bad fortunately. Species seen were;
