Joy of Wildlife

Criorhina floccosa

Our outings are for anyone who is interested in wildlife to come along and contribute to the biological records for Shropshire.

You do not need to possess any ability to identify the wildlife, although any you do have will be welcomed, just a willingness to try to spot things of interest and enjoy the camaraderie of the group. Members of the group are more than happy to try and identify what you find and help to develop your own skills.

The outings usually last about 5 hours. We take a picnic lunch and occasionally end up in a local hostelry after a 'hard' day.

Everyone comes at their own risk and is expected to take a sensible attitude to Health and Safety issues. Children aged under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

We meet as a group of friends out for the day together doing something we all enjoy.

If you would like to come along to any of the events please let me know. If you are willing to be part of an email circulation list I will inform you of the details of each walk about five days in advance.
