Together with Frampton Cotterell Nature Group, Frampton Cotterell Parish Council is organising a Frampton Cotterell BioBlitz Weekend, from Friday the 29th April to Monday the 2nd of May.

BioBlitzing is part of the worldwide City Nature Challenge. We want as many people as possible to go out into their local area to record as many plants and animals as you can find – even if you only venture as far as your own back garden, you can get involved and make a difference!

To take part in the Bioblitzing, all you have to do is download the iNaturalist app to your smartphone, then go out and get Blitzing! The sightings you officially record via the app will be verified over the course of the weekend. Help us make Bristol and the surrounding area the number 1 top ranked region for Bioblitzing this year!

But that’s not all… As well as doing some independent BioBlitzing across the village, we have a whole day of exciting activities for you to take part in! Come along to Centenary Field, Mill Lane, on Saturday the 30th of  April, where you can get involved with:

🎶 A Dawn Chorus walk: 5am-6:30am

🕊 Bird walk: 10am-11am
🌳 Tree walk: 11am-12pm
🦋 Butterfly walk: 1pm-2pm
🌼 Wildflower walk: 2pm-3pm
🐛 Bug hunt: 3pm-4pm
🦦 Mammal tracking: 4pm-5pm
🦇 Bat walk: 8pm-9:30pm
+ multiple sessions taking place throughout the day between 10AM – 4PM, including iNaturalist workshops, hedgehog information sessions, Severn Wildlife Rescue stall/raffle, and fun craft activities!

NB: Please note that walk times are subject to change. Please keep an eye on our Bioblitz Weekend Facebook Event Page for updates, or check at base camp at Centenary Fields on the day.
