Use this time to get outside, enjoy your garden, find joy in the simple things and reconnect with the nature on your doorstep.
Here are some ideas to keep you busy over the coming weeks:
- Tell us what you see in your garden – here.
We have an online sightings and recording system for you to tell us what species you see in your garden. This information will help us to get a clearer representation of how our local flora and fauna are thriving or where they are in decline. The data collected will also feed in to the National Biodiversity Network’s database,which is shared by ecologists across the country. All species records , rare and common, are welcome!
- Get your hands dirty and make your garden a heaven for wildlife – ideas here.
Whether you’ve got a windowsill, a small garden or a big piece of land – we’ve got loads of things you can do to make habitats for wildlife.
- Learn from our experts – videos and blogs.
We will be publishing a series of mini expert videos and blogs from our resident ecologists, conservationists, entomologists and wildlife enthusiasts to keep you connected with nature over the coming weeks.
- Avoid the crowds and visit a nature reserve – information here.
Nature is free and on your doorstep. Our nature reserves are open and ready to be explored or rediscovered. Please follow government advice when leaving your home.
