Take a walk along the banks of the River Itchen and you enter a magical world where otters play, mayfly dart, brown trout slip through the weeds and water vole peer from burrows. Winchester has its very own Wind in the Willows habitat and Susan Simmonds of the Hampshire Wildlife Trust talks to Kyle Alexander about her work protecting and celebrating the county’s glorious chalk stream landscapes and where and when to spot the Itchen’s beguiling array of wildlife.
