I've only just seen this thread Deb, I'd been thinking of starting it myself!
I walked along that stretch of the Ver in 2009 when I followed the course of the whole river from its source here in my home village of Kensworth to where it joins the Colne (to be precise, it only starts in Kensworth in the winter, the first section dries up in the summer months).
On Saturday I did an 8.5 circular walk from Maidensgrove Common in the Oxfordshire section of the Chilterns. I passed through Stonor, College Wood, Pishill and Russell's Water before calling in at the Warburg nature reserve to look at the orchids there.
Today I made my first visit to the National Trust's site at Denbies Hillside, near Dorking in Surrey. It's a lovely piece of Chalk Downland with wonderful views and some excellent wildlife, including numerous species of butterflies. By sheer good fortune I happened to go on a day when aeshan5 was leading a group round the site, so I had the great benefit of his expertise - I wouldn't have seen half so much if he hadn't ponted it out!
Walked from the Beinn Eighe Visitor Centre to Meall a'Ghiubhais.
Saw a few plants I could identify - bilberry, juniper, a heather, a clubmoss, and others I could not. Unfortunately the animal life was lacking. There were signs of deer and grouse (or some other bird that does a poo like grouse) but other than a couple of ravens I did not see anything else.
