Wildlife Safari 2 – into the night

Local Journeys‘ second Wildlife Safari (see previous post about the first one) took place in the Ham Green area on 31st August and proved to be very popular with families. As part of the Local Journeys team I’d helped with organising and documenting the event, as well as preparing some moths – they had to be warned that they’d come under close scrutiny from budding young wildlife enthusiasts – happily both behaved well!

During the afternoon there was a chance for participants to try out fishing at the beautiful Ham Green Lake; find out about the life of bees in the equally beautiful Penny Brohn Cancer Care Centre gardens; explore a riverside woodland then in the evening look for bats, and those moths, in the Ham Green Community Orchard after a picnic round the bonfire – a fantastic day.
