Event description

Description

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what is living on your doorstep by joining this local BioBlitz event.

How many living species can you find on a 25-acre site that only 6 years ago was a barley field? Flowers, birds, bugs, beetles, dragonflies, butterflies, moths, snails, spiders and more - everything that moves or grows.

Our team of experienced naturalists, ecologists and wildlife watchers need you rhelp to find and identifry as smany species of bugs, plants, beasties and birds as we can before the clock runs out.

You can join a group activity or can use a spotter sheet to record the nature and wildlife in Three Hagges Woodmeadow. No prior knowledge is necessary and all ages are welcome.

Local wildlife organisations will be exhibiting and holding demonstrations on Saturday 6th July from 12 noon to 16.00.
