Go Wild at the Dunsbury Coast – IW BioBlitz 2024

Join the BioBlitz at Dunsbury Farm – Saturday 22 June, 10am – 4pm.
Since taking over The Dunsbury Estate above Compton Bay in 2015, The National Trust set about evolving it from intensive farming into a sustainable, wildlife-rich landscape. Now, it’s time to discover the amazing species that call this place home.
Will you spot the rare Glanville Fritillary butterfly, hear skylarks, or find cat’s ear? All you need to do is photograph the plants and animals you see on your phone, and our seasoned naturalists will help identify them.

You’ll be contributing to a proper scientific survey that’s recording the changing state of nature.
???? Explore & Learn:
???? Visit the mobile lab with microscopes
????‍♂️ Join a Grass Safari guided walk
???? Fun for kids: nature trails, fossils, barn owl poo pellets, and skulls!
???? Learn about bats, hedgehogs, and enjoy the wonders of moths.
This free drop-in event is perfect for all ages, from nature beginners to experts. It’s dog-friendly too (please keep dogs on leads).
???? Parking: Hanover Point car park at Compton Bay, PO30 4HB. There is level access to the BioBlitz displays from the car park.
