New Forest Winter Bird Survey

Volunteer surveyors are needed to help with the New Forest Winter Bird Survey.  The survey is particularly designed to monitor the numbers of hen harriers and great grey shrikes over wintering in the New Forest, but also counts winter thrushes and other resident and migratory species.

If you are interested in taking part, please please via the Contact Us form and you message will be forwarded to the survey coordinator.

Butterfly Walk cancelled

The Met Office forecast for Wednesday 2 August 2017 now suggests it will be very overcast with a 50% chance of rain from 9.00 am, with the probability of rain increasing throughout the morning.  In these conditions, we are very unlikely to see butterflies.  Additionally, it would appear that this season butterflies emerged early and are now much less abundant than they were a month ago.

Hence, we are cancelling the 2 August walk at Denny Wood.  WE look forward to seeing you again in September after the summer break.
