Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All


Thank you to all who came to our 2017 Bioblitz, we recorded at least 144 species! A full, verified list of species will appear here in due course.

When is it?

Unfortunately, we are not able to run a Bioblitz in 2018. We will let you know when we can run one in 2019.

What is it?


Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on our doorstep by joining in at our 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 will we do?

Speak to us when you arrive and we will help you search our grounds for as many living things you can try to identify, We will aso have:

Local wildlife organisation stalls, Nettle teas, Earthworm charming, Pond dipping, Moth trapping, Mammal trapping, Arts and crafts, Orienteering, Self guided history tour, Self guided bug hunting, Goat petting, Microscpoes, Quizes, Gift Shop, Refreshments.

Some activities will be timed, please see below for the latest programme.
