This will be a rare opportunity to be involved in some fantastic experiences, such as “Bird Ringing”, bats in their natural habitat and there will also be a chance to meet our local celebrity Darcey the Owl!
There will be a range of activities to include walks, talks, trails, crafts, meet and greet with animals and creatures, photographic exhibition, pet service, forest school and what to do if you find an injured animal or bird. There will be something that will appeal to all ages from bugs to bats.A number of local and national societies will have stands and lots of experts will be on hand including Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Butterfly Conservation, Avon Valley River Trust, a wildlife refuge, British Trust for Ornithology, RSPB etc etc.
A number of people, as well as the local scouts, are building a variety of boxes including those for Barn Owls, Little Owls and House Sparrows. The Owl boxes will be put up in local trees and barn’s ( if we can use one) and the House Sparrows, who have communal nests, will have new housing in the centre of the village.
We have also secured talks from some very exciting speakers-including Kelvin Boot. Watch this space!!
