Wildlife Wanders 2011 is a project funded by Big Lottery Awards 4 All programme.
It has introduced new audiences to wildlife, whilst also giving people already involved a chance to learn more. So far there has been a mix of practical skills training, introductory sessions and species identification. We have worked with the Field Studies Council to produce an interesting and varied programme of ecology and species identification. These have been at such differing sites as Trench meadows SSSI with an abundance of Knapweed to the urban site of Brackenhill ULA. People who have attended have had the opportunity of gaining close encounters with wildlife with experts on hand to give guidance.
