dates to be confirmedFind routeGeneral Meeting. Middlewick Ranges Local Wildlife Site. Meetings are planned for May/June, July/August and October. We will only be able to confirm the field trip dates about a month in advance, due to the late advertising of firing times. The meeting place is at the army post on Mersea Road - TM005229. Park in Queen Elizabeth Way opposite.

The site is diverse, with large areas of acid grassland, gorse and broom scrub, and a patch of relict heath. The site is most noted for its Hymenoptera, but the invertebrate and other interest is known to be very high generally.
