The amazing wildlife of the village – WT invites you to join in the discovery

The Summer months are proving very active for the Wildlife Trust and any villager interested in joining some discovery evenings is very welcome to join. 

On June 17th and 24th an ‘expedition’ sets off from Moor Lane to survey bats in Ox Close Woods at dusk. This builds on previous research with a consultant bat expert in may which identified four types of bats there through the recording and interpreting of bat calls.

On June 28th amphibians come under the spotlight. A week later, on July 5, (this event is deferred to a future date – Ed) it is the turn of bees wasps and ants. Finally on July 31 dragonflies and damselflies.

These events, and a full calendar of other events around the year make the Wildlife Trust an irresistible draw to anyone who’s ever been interested in the wildlife around us. The Wildlife Trust hopes to put some of its findings into an illustrated book to mark a ten year survey of natural history in the parish. No experience is required to take part, just an interest in the subject and villagers will find a warm welcome if you’d like to join in. For more information click here:
