We wish you a happy new year and we would like to invite you to our first activity this year, which will be a partly guided, partly self-guided, twig ID competition during the second half of the month. Please note that you can participate in different ways and you can attend only some of the numbered steps below if you wish so.
#1. Training session: Online (Zoom), Saturday 16th January 10-10.30 am. We will teach you how to identify key tree or shrub species in winter. We will have a handout to complement the session and for those who are interested but cannot make it. We will set up a challenge for you to complete for #2.
#2. Self-guided twig hunt: With the help of the resources we will provide you with, you are welcome to undertake a twig hunt at a location of your choice (remember, if you are going out of your garden, this needs to be part of your daily time out for exercise) anytime between the 16th and the 31st of January (before #3).
#3. ID verification session: Once you have collected your twigs for the challenge, join us on another online (Zoom) session on the 31st Sunday 4-5 pm to have your twigs verified. We will select a winner for the competition.
If you are interested in this, please email us so we can send you the relevant information, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

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).
