Milford Conservation Volunteers Go Wild!

The Milford on Sea BioBlitz on Friday 7th June and Saturday 8th June. There will be a number of sessions over the two days that provide opportunities to go on a guided bird watch, take part in a mini-beast hunt, look out for moths and bats, have a go at pond dipping and experience a dawn chorus. By taking part you’ll experience nature close up, have fun, and understand why wildlife recording is so important.

A “BioBlitz” is an event that engages local people with biodiversity, inviting them to get directly involved in surveying and monitoring local wildlife. During a BioBlitz event, specialists and members of the public work together to survey a natural space; identifying and recording as many species as possible over 24 hours. It’s a great opportunity to discover and understand the diversity of wildlife living on your doorstep.

Full details of how to join in with the BioBlitz can be found on the Milford Conservation Volunteers website at:
