Low Moor, Bradford

Tuesday 20th June, 2017
Dealburn Road

Today's outing will be to two sites in the Low Moor area of Bradford. In the morning we will explore a new site off Dealburn Road, (grid.ref.SE164280).On this date last year Southern Marsh Orchids and Bee Orchids were discovered on the site. There are other interesting plants and the site is good for avian and insect life also. We will park at the far end of Dealburn Road near the roundabout.

After a lunch stop at Woodlands Cricket Club (toilet facilities available), we will proceed to Railway Terrace Nature Reserve, (grid.ref.SE166284), which we haven’t visited for five years. Walking is fairly easy on both sites and no great distances are involved. We will be accompanied on both sites by Martyn Priestley, who is known to some of our group and who records the wildlife in the Low Moor area.

Leader: Martyn Priestley. Coordinator: Joan Dobson.
