Car Sharing Trip to Frensham Common, Surrey.

Location: Cars leave at 8am from Sports & Leisure Centre, Court Place Farm, Marsh Lane, Marston, OX3 0NQ - just off the Oxford northern by-pass.

This will be our very first trip to the common. The extensive heathland is a SSSI that supports a wealth of wildlife including reed warblers, hobby, cuckoo, redstart, woodlark, nightjar and tree pipit. Twenty five species of butterfly have been recorded on the common along with twenty species of dragonfly. There is also a chance of seeing some reptiles as all six native species are resident - snakes, lizards and slow-worm.
The site has a small café with toilets.
We would expect to be back in Oxford by 4pm.

Time: Cars leave at 8am from Sports & Leisure Centre, Court Place Farm, Marsh Lane, Marston, OX3 0NQ - just off the Oxford northern by-pass.

Price: Petrol costs are shared by car occupants.
