We’ll be aiming to find this silver hook moth at the BioBlitz

Just a few days to go now until one of our biggest wildlife events of the year. Together with Bournemouth University, we’re holding a BioBlitz this Sunday, an all-day feast of wildlife recording and sharing our passion with like-minded people. The aim is to record as many species as possible on the Studland peninsula, particularly targeting those found by naturalist Cyril Diver in the 1930’s.
It’s going to be a great opportunity to team up with some top experts as they’ll be leading walks throughout the day.
It’s been a wonderful day here. The bell heather is flowering, dragonflies are becoming more numerous every day, especially four-spotted chasers and black-tailed skimmers, and young stonechats are showing well.
