24th June 2017
Gosbecks Archeological Park, Colchester
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.
At the Gosbecks BioBlitz you can explore the amazing grassland as we build a species list of what can be found here.
Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:
Dawn (ish) Bird survey 6am, Wildlife Walk 10:30am, Bat Survey 9pm, all day we will be Bug hunting and identifying flora.
- Start – 6am on 24th June
