A Bioblitz is a fun event where we aim to scour the reserve to find as many different species of animal and plant as possible! We will have some great packs for families to use to discover the amazing nature on the reserve. There will be lots of themed guided walks throughout the day and our friends at Cofnod will be helping us to collect all the results!
Don't forget even if you can't make it over the weekend you can check in regularly to see the results as they are recorded at http://www.cofnod.org.uk/BioBlitz
Welcome to all for this year’s programme. Recording sessions are on Sundays, from 2pm prompt until about 5pm. Everyone is welcome, so please bring friends and family and most of all tell anyone else who you think might be interested. No need to reserve a place, but do please phone or email if you need help with transport and especially about car-sharing. You do not need to be a member of the BSBI, just interested in plants and understand that you come at your own risk.
