AUTUMN BIOBLITZ - come along and help join to race to record as much wildlife as possible in a day

11 October 2015 (next Saturday)
Brandon County Park
Bury Road, Brandon, Suffolk IP27 0SU

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, bugs, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife. With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

More information (and there will be even more early in the week) visit the website here:

LICHENS OF THE BRECKS - 2 field meetings where you can be introduced to lichen ID and recording.  These can act as a taster session for those who may wish to take part in a full day workshop in 2016.

Churchyard lichens:
17th October, morning field meeting, starting at Brandon Church (with possible extension to Weeting Church).  Learn all about the special lichens that live in churchyards

Heathland lichens:
8th November, full day field meeting, starting at Thetford Warren and then moving on to Weeting Heath.  Learn about the special heathland lichens that are particular to the Brecks; specific attention will be made to the Cladonia species.

Both lichen meetings are FREE to attend, but booking is ESSENTIAL.  They are fine for beginners and experts alike.  So hopefully see you there!!
