“We are meeting at Barking Tye Village Hall from where we will take the 15-20 minute walk along public footpaths to this delightful reserve “ said Phil Smith, Chairman of the SWT Woodbridge Wildlife Group. “Bonny Wood is part of Barking Tye Woods, a site of special scientific interest and, weather permitting, is a good place to spot a range of butterflies. We’ll also be on the lookout for woodland flowers and birds.”
