Wildlife Discovery Day a big success

2nd June 2017

A wild time was had by all at the 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:
