Going wild with Blackdown Hills Natural Futures

( Last Updated: 20-06-2017 )

A wild time was had by all at Blackdown Hills Natural Futures’ Wildlife Discovery Day. 

Nearly 500 people came along to Forde Abbey, near Chard, to explore trees, plants, wildflowers, birds, bees, butterflies, moths, reptiles, mammals and mini-beasts. The day’s activities included pond and river dipping, birdwatching, bug hunts, forest crafts and more.

A big thank you to all the organisations, individuals and volunteers who made it such a special day, including:

Bumblebee Conservation Trust

Butterfly Conservation

Dorset Mammal Group

Environment Agency

Ferne Animal Sanctuary

Magdelen Environmental Trust

The Mammal Society

Neroche Conservation Volunteers

RSPB

Somerset Badger Group

Somerset Environmental Records Centre

Somerset Ornithological Society

Somerset Otter Group

Somerset Wildlife Trust

Sharandys Birds of Prey

Woodland Trust

We’d love to hear about your encounters at the Wildlife Discovery Day.
