Are you ready for my Wild Challenges? 

Get to know your local wildlife with these fun activities

A great way to get connected with the wildlife in your local patch, I have created a range of activities. These are primarily aimed at families but I hope that anyone, old or young will find something that they will enjoy trying out. From inproving wildlife habitats in your garden, to learning how to recognise some of the visitors, I try to include as many different types of challenges as possible.

Click on the 'Find out more' button to find out more each challenge and choose which one you would like to try. You will find all you need to know to get going!
