Founder Ros Jones has a background in plant identification and is a keen birdwatcher, so you are bound to pick up some interesting facts along the way!

Ros said: "During the recent lockdowns and a subsequent period of ill health, one of the few things I could do was to go walking and engage with the wildlife around me.

"The physical activity was great, but it was the mental wellbeing I got from being in nature that really helped me get through those difficult times.

"This experience inspired me to set up Wildlife Wellbeing Walks in February 2022. My aim is to share my love of nature with others and for them to get the same benefits that I have.

"Exploring your local nature patches and experiencing the changing seasons in the local area is a great way to relax and unwind."

They recommend you wear stout footwear and suitable outdoor clothing for the weather (e.g. waterproofs, warm clothing and hat, gloves and scarf).
