Just completed a thoroughly enjoyable 1.25 walk through Castle Gardens in Leicester with Dave Nicholls in conjunction with Leicester City Council's Walking & Cycling team - http://www.choosehowyoumove.co.uk/events/
Good to have "cross-pollination" between the groups!
Just FYI, I'm based in Sapcote, but unfortunately, don't have transport at the moment. What I do have, left over from my previous life is a Canon DSLR with macro lens and ring flash if anyone needs to borrow such an outfit - macro photos, no problem! The only problem is the ring flash "eats" AA batteries - 8 at a time!!
Welcome Chris, we look forward to your contributions to NatureSpot. You can find wildlife anywhere - parks, gardens, crack in the pavement are all rich sources!
