Somersham Local Nature Reserve, Cambridgeshire, PE28 3JD

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 Somersham LNR  you can explore the amazing reserve as we join experts to carry out various surveys and activities for the Bioblitz / Nature Watch.

Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:

Pond dipping, Moth trapping, Mammal trapping, Dawn chorus walk, Bug hunting, Bat walk, Butterfly walk, and a Plant hunt.
