walk led by the Herefordshire's Countryside Ranger Team?
A new programme of guided walks is now available and this

which will provide unique opportunities to get closer to
wildlife and explore the Herefordshire countryside.
first walk this spring is 'Dawn Deer Stalk' which starts
at 6am on Saturday, 9th May. Countryside Ranger Paul Ratcliffe
will take you around Haugh Woods and the surrounding countryside
to track deer, and although spotting one is not guaranteed,
you will be able to see lots of evidence of their presence
and get some tips on how to track them. You will also be
able to enjoy the wide variety of flora on display as the
woods and fields will be full of spring flowers and apple
our feathered friends are more your thing then why not join
Countryside Ranger Trevor Hulme for a 7.30am start on Saturday,
16th May looking for 'early birds' at Queenswood Country
Park. Trevor is a keen ornithologist and will give you an
insight into identifying birds by their song and you will
also get to explore the country park before many of the
days' visitors start to arrive.
of these walks are free, although booking is essential to
help manage numbers. To book your place, please contact
Queenswood Tourist Information Centre on 01568 797842. The
full programme of guided walks can be found in the new "Walks

the summer and beyond. The leaflet is available from libraries,
leisure centres and tourist information centres across the
County and of course Queenswood Country Park.
