Spring Bird Walk on April 2nd
This year’s Bird Walk around Shardeloes lake had 15 keen walkers taking part who spotted 42 different species of birds.
Around the lake were seen reed buntings, pochard, great and little crested grebe along with numerous geese, gulls and duck.
Overhead there were even enough swallows to make a summer!
This great picture of Canada geese lifting off was taken by Hanna Lukasiewicz.

For the past 6 months, anyone who purchased own-brand products from the Great Missenden Coop were able to nominate Prestwood Nature as the local charity to receive 1% of what they spent. This raised a total of £2180 which was presented to us on 19th April by Neil Smith, manager of the Great Missenden Co-op.
The money will be spent helping us to turn Boug’s Meadow into a wild-flower meadow in the heart of Great Missenden.
