Brian Clews: The Big Cookham Wildlife Weekend

Sunday May 5th, Noon
Sir Bernard Miller Centre, Odney

Our natural world is struggling in many parts of the open countryside for a wide range of reasons and there is little most of us can do about it. However, one significant section of the countryside we can make a contribution with are our gardens.


Our talk shows some of the amazing creatures we might hope to find in the average garden and encourages us all to & go on safari & in our gardens on June 22nd/23rd. The weekend offers Great fun for the whole family as the search in shrubs and bushes, and under leaves, stones etc goes on. You can list all the ones you know, but you can also simply count how many different sorts of birds, butterflies, bugs, beetles, ladybirds, bees and other beasties you find.
