For any of the following Email: rangers@warrington.gov.uk


Sunday 22 January 12 11.00am - 2.00pm


Get some practice in with the Rangers and RIMAG, so you’re ready to help with the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch next weekend.

We’ll be polishing up our garden bird I.D. skills and making some tasty bird treats. Drop in and find out more.


Saturday 25 February 12 9.30am - 12.00 noon


A walk of a mile or so across Latchford Locks to Woolston Eyes Nature Reserve, to see the winter wildlife and appreciate the scale of this hidden gem. With a warden from the Woolston Eyes Conservation Group as our guide, we may also have the chance of watching bird ringers in action for a close-up view of woodland birds.

Please bring binoculars if you have them. Places are limited so please book in advance on 01925 758195.

There is a charge of £2 per person, payable to the warden, to go towards conservation work on the reserve.

Meet at the Spar shop car park, Thelwall New Road.

Sunday 5 February 12 1.30pm - 3.00pm


Mid winter can be a tough, merciless time for our wildlife, yet somehow birds, animals and plants do manage to survive this unforgiving period and a good winter’s day can be very busy! Why not join the Rangers today for a stroll through the nature reserve looking at the adaptations which plants and animals have evolved as a means to beat our (occasionally)

cruel and savage winters.


Sunday 18 March 11.00am - 1.00pm


Join us on this springtime mossland walk to look out for signs that our native wildlife is waking up. It may still be chilly, so wrap up warmly and wear stout footwear.

Places are limited so please book in advance on 01925 824339.


Saturday 31 March 12 1.30pm - 3.00pm

Amphibimania @ Rixton Claypits

If we fall lucky with the early spring weather, we should be able to see all four species of our resident amphibians. To learn more about frogs, toads and newts, their conservation and how the Rangers manage the habitats for them, why not come along today and if you have ever considered building a pond in your garden, the Rangers can give you some hints and tips to create the ideal pond for wildlife
