October 2016


In October we produced an article about the project for BCT's membership magazine Bat News and an article for the Parish Magazine covering Swanton Novers, Thornage, Brinningham, Brinton, Hunsworth and Stody.

We also attended the Wild about Norfolk Environmental and Conservation Fair at Easton College, an event which gives 

Wild about Norfolk 2016

local conservation and wildlife organisations an opportunity to showcase their work and educate interested parties about Norfolk's wonderful wildlife from bats to  dragonfly nymph, woodlice and harvest mice. 

Wild about Norfolk 2016

We shared a room with the Norwich Bat Group, the Norfolk Biodiversity Information Services (NBIS) and the Norfolk Barbastelle Study Group. All had interesting and informative displays. Many including girl guides and brownies came to our stand asking questions about the project and about bats in general, while there was a mad rush by the brownies to make bat hats at the Norwich Bat Group stand.  In total 1000 people came to Wild About Norfolk and Easton College have just announced that they will be hosting the event again next year on Saturday 7th of October.

Fly agarics

We have recruited two more volunteers bringing our total number of volunteers up to twenty-one. 

End of October meant we were back in Swanton to deploy the static detectors. At this time of the year, the woodland is looking pretty magnificentSulphur tuft. The trees are slowly changing colour, providing splashes of reds, golds, yellows and browns throughout and the ground is covered with a variety of fungi from the red and white fly agarics to the yellow domes of the sulphur tuft.
