Nightime Wildlife on Shapwick Heath – 27th July

Visit the reserve at night with the Shapwick team to hunt for glow-worms, spy for owls, get the bat-detectors out and join members of RoAM to run a moth-trap.

Spaces limited, booking essential. No charge but donations welcomed towards the Noah’s Hide Wildlife Mural Fund.

Places are limited so booking is essential. RoAM events are free to attend as our aim is to educate and attract more people into the wildlife recording community, but as a joint event with Natural England we are asking for donations to the Noah's Hide Wildlife Mural Fund. For further information, booking and donations please contact Julie Merrett by e-mail: or telephone 01458 860120. Please dress appropriately for the weather with stout footwear. This event will involve walking at a countryside site which contains uneven ground. If you have any additional mobility requirements or any other needs please contact us to discuss them. We will endeavor to accommodate them wherever possible.
