In December, we will have a nut hunt. We will be walking on a woodland owned by the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust looking for hazelnuts with teeth marks from wood mice, bank voles and dormice! These marks are visible with the naked eye but you are welcome to bring small magnifying lenses if you have any.
We will be sharing our records with the Mammal Society via an app called Mammal Mapper or iRecord. If you have any of these apps on your phone, we can show you how to use them if you've never done it before, so you can repeat the hunt by yourself another time and log in your sightings.
We will aim to have three separate young groups covering different areas of the wood, one group will be young families, one group teenagers and one group young people of any age! Please get in touch if you are interested in coming and tell us what group you will be joining.
Young Nature Watch (YNW) is a branch of the Tisbury and District Natural History Society (T&DNHS).
YNW is free for under-21s! Young people always have priority at any of our activities but accompanying adults are required for under-12s.
For adults, annual membership for the T&DNHS (£10) or a £2 fee per event (for non-members) is due.
