Monthly Feature with Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust

This afternoon we heard from Sarah Buckingham and Sarah Mee - both from the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

It's autumn and a great time of year for local wildlife nature. A top tip was to check out Autumn Watch on BBc2 starting this Thursday at 8.30pm. It runs for 8 weeks and will cover all things autumnal.

And if you want to venture outdoors, autumn is a great time of year in local area for nature and wildlife. Lots of different fungi can be found growing this time of year, particulary in Balls Wood or Gobions Wood. Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust have produced a 'Fungi Detective Spotting' sheet which is available here.

Autumn is also a good time to see roosting birds. Some great nature reserves for birdwatching include Amwell and King's Meads. A Winter Birds spotting sheet has been produced by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust which is available here.

Next, we were told all about the new fundraising campaign 'Wear your Wellies for Wildlife'. Wear your Wellies for Wildlife is a truly brilliant fundraising campaign, which will see everyone enjoying fun filled antics as wacky-welly-races or designing a wildife welly in the children's drawing competition. You could even get sponsored to wear your wellies!
