Dung beetle survey
On Saturday the 11th of March we will do a dung beetle (or beetles in dung) survey with the ecologist and Wiltshire county recorder for bats and mammals Gareth Harris. Why is this mammal specialist interested in beetles and dung? Come and find out! We will do this survey at 10 o'clock at Wallmead Farm; specific meeting point to be confirmed closer to the time and for those who book their space.
Thank you to everybody who came to our bat box workshop. We hope our participants will also encourage bats by creating a diversity of habitats in their gardens that will provide food sources for our favourite flying mammals. Have a look at the pictures of the workshop on our Instagram account post.
February: bat box workshop
On Saturday the 25th of February at 10 am we will be making bat boxes from ready made kits that you will be able to take home to install (we will give you advice on how to improve habitats for bats and put the boxes). The boxes will be partly financed by the Tisbury and District Natural History Society, please make a £10 contribution for each box you will take with you. Please register your interest in this activity by Sunday the 12th of February so we can buy the right number of boxes for the event.
Young Nature Watch (YNW) is a branch of the Tisbury and District Natural History Society (TNHS). Our first event was on July 2020.
YNW is free for under-21s! Young people always have priority at any of our activities but accompanying adults are required for under-12s. Whenever possible, we will aim to split attendants into three different groups:
- Families with young children
- Teenagers only
- Young-at-heart of all ages
For adults, annual membership for the TNHS (£10) or a £2 fee per event (for non-members) is due.
YNW activities are organised by Inés Lopez-Doriga and Izzy Fry (find out more about how it all started in Focus, p.27).
