30 Days Wild 2018 – Day Twenty-four

twt-30-days-wild_countdown_24Day 24: Today we visited Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve, Congleton. This small nature reserve has a lake and a one mile circular walk through woodland, heath and grassland, which is popular with dog walkers. There is also a visitor centre. The car park charge was £2 for up to three hours, or £3 for all day. I was slightly saddened that nature sightings weren’t very high but there were butterflies and damsels fluttering over the many spotted orchids in a wildflower meadow.

We did spot a striking broad bodied chaser, a species neither of us had seen before.

Have you visited Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve? Have something like it near you?

Thanks for reading and stay wild!

  1. Looks like some great nature spots to me. 😊. I was at the festival in Gisburn Forest this weekend and also saw common spotted orchids and azure damselfly. Xx

  2. This is not too far away from me yet I’ve never heard of it until now, despite having driven through Brereton many times. It’s even closer if I go from school as I work towards Congleton… could be a 30 Days Wild activity for me if I have chance on day this week!
