Stroud Valleys Project’s summer-long Landscapes of the Lark festival is well underway.
The Stroud-based conservation and community-building charity is working with partners across a variety of disciplines and media to delve into the role larks play in our rural life, our art and our culture, with upcoming events including a wildflower walk on Wednesday 14 June, and a Walk with the Blues on Monday 19 June – that’s a specialist stroll exploring the blue butterflies of the common, including the Large Blue featured on BBC TV’s Wild Isles.
In Spring Skylarks of Rodborough Common, Stroud Valleys Project (SVP) is welcoming birding expert Andy Lewis to the common for an early morning session learning about Skylarks and other birds that live in this special landscape. Andy will be sharing his knowledge on Tuesday 30 May at 8.30am; SVP will supply the precise location upon booking.
This event is in collaboration with the National Trust and is supported by the Cotswold National Landscape’s Farming in Protected Landscapes fund.
