Ock Valley Walk
On the Ock Valley walk there was one half of a big willow tree came down over the weekend.

Lots of new trees have been planted by members of the Green Gym in previous years at the town end of the path. They will provide good cover for wildlife in years to come.

This year, on their first outing after Easter, 18 people, with the Green Gym, spread wood chip on the path, and litter picked the Ock Valley Walk. A programme for people interested in exercising to make a difference with the Green Gym is here.

And by the way this is a deer that crossed the Ock Valley Walk, crossed the River Ock, and then escaped into the gardens of St Amand Drive on the other side.

    Best not advertise this as the deer are being targeted in South Abingdon. I believe there have been 7 found dead in the last couple of months.

    So very sad as they’re beautiful

    They are very beautiful, but muntjacks have become a pest in domestic areas. They are rather like the urban fox: lovely to look at, but in the wrong context inclined to be untidy :-)
