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 (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).
