Additional Info
This may involve quite a bit of walking. Staines Moor is a SSSI just within the M25, hosting rare plants and animals. Ground nesting skylarks and lapwing fill the skies with interest, barn owls skim the grazed floodplain grasses and shrubs at dusk and dawn. Ancient, magnificent Meadow Ant hills proliferate. The area is part of the Colne Valley and has several waterways meandering naturally through: the Wraysbury River, the Colne River and Bonehead Ditch, plus some stationary water cuts used in flood management.
10:30 at Moor Lane, TQ03037230, TW18 4YY. Parking on-road (free) near the junction with Annie Brookes Close. If you drive under the A30 you've gone a bit too far.
