Discovery Bay! This weekend…

iWatch Wildlife will be there across both days helping with species spotting / identification and aiming to compile a list of all species encountered during the weekend – there’s a packed programme and it’s shaping up to be a great event.
There will also be a rare chance to enjoy and explore a selection of specimens from the archives of the IWNHAS!
The event is open to all, and it would be great to see you there – please do pop in and see what’s going on.
Any help that you may be able to offer across the weekend, and in particular with species spotting / ID (birds, botany, marine life) during the afternoon beach discovery walk on Sunday 12th in Sandown, would be warmly welcomed!
