Enjoy wildlife with our friendly group in the South Hams

We run a programme of walks every 1-2 months and a yearly talk, usually in November

Looking for wildlife and Bolt Head

Keen to share knowledge

A wide variety of people attend our events and many have excellent knowledge of wildlife particularly birds and flowering plants. Our group are keen to share this knowledge, to learn from others and enjoy the excellent wildlife in our area.

In addition to organising events, we are involved in fundraising and a small amount of conservation work. This includes monitoring bird boxes in Lady’s Wood at South Brent. 

We also arrange committee outings to areas of special wildlife interest.

Nature reserves

DWT nature reserves in our area are Lady’s Wood, Andrews Wood, Wembury Marine Reserve and now the recently purchased New England Wood.

Further Information

Children are welcome for free at all of our events, though we don’t organise activities specifically for children.

We need more people to join our friendly relaxed committee, to organise and help out at events, especially people with the confidence to lead a walk.

If you are interested, come and join us at one of our meetings, without obligation.
