Wildlife Walks in Oxfordshire, UK

My favourite walk is a local jaunt that takes about 30 minutes. Along narrow pathways surrounded by trees and filled with a diversity of wildlife. The changing of the seasons means there’s always something new to discover. Chattering birds, sheep that pretend to ignore you, hungry ducks and a pair of Swans, who return each year to nest. A large, fluffy Maine Coon walks up and down the road, greeting anyone willing to stop and stoke it. There’s also a historic, manor farm with a dovecote, the building and grounds of which have been used in film sets and for Shakespearean productions during the summer months.
