It's a Bug's Life

Head on over to Walton Lake tomorrow, one of the best places in Milton Keynes for enjoying wildlife, and enjoy some hands-on activities from 10am-12 noon. There will be bug hunting, games and activities, and children can get involved and discover some of the minibeasts living around the lake.

Walton Lake was originally built as a balancing lake for the river Ouzel, but was no longer needed once Willen and Caldecotte lakes were created. Since then, the lake has filled with reeds, and as a result provides a very different habitat to many of the city's other lakes, and is the perfect home for many minibeasts and creatures. There is a boardwalk into the reed bed which has two bird-hides on the route, providing great opportunities for spotting some of the local birds and wildlife close-up.

There's plenty to be seen, and this 'bug's life' event will provide great opportunities for doing so. Booking is essential to secure a place, click here to book. Tickets are just £3 per child, and the morning is suitable for any children over the age of 4 years. Meet at the car park on Newport Road, Woughton Park (off the H8 Standing Way) and have a fun time!
