New Wildlife blog and free nature resources for download

We have added a new blog to wildlife pages and draw your attention to the Woodland Trust’s wildlife initiatives for exploring nature and photography:

Use their nature exploration packs for natural play around Cannon Hill and River Rea Linear Parks: Over a thousand free activity sheets to use in woods and at home. Guaranteed fun for young people and families throughout the year. Or why not take out the camera and join in with their volunteer photography scheme? With dappled sunlight and fresh morning dew, Cannon Hill and River Rea Linear Parks have great places to take pictures. Add your thoughts and photos and help us inspire everyone about woodland, wild life, wildflower plants, gardens, rivers and pools.

Lastly, there are a suite of new identification guides for download for the National OPAL website. These are very useful guides to a range of wildlife. Oh and don’t forget iSpot!
