Saturday 29th July

Inn Common, Middledyke Lane, Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU16 4NH

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.

What’s happening

At the Inn Common BioBlitz you can explore the amazing 10 acres of disused farmland as it returns to nature as we investigate the stages of change and what this means for species diversity.

Drop in and see us on the day of Saturday the 29th of July for some amazing activities including, Insect Surveying, Plant Identification and Bird Spotting.

  • Start – 10AM on 29th July
  • Finish – 4PM on 29th July
