A WILDLIFE WALK & TALK FOR APRIL


Suffolk Wildlife Trust, Woodbridge Wildlife Group are planning both a guided walk and a talk during April 2022.

On Saturday 9 April the group will be leading a walk for wildlife on Sutton Heath, starting at 10am. Phil Smith, Chairman of the Woodbridge Wildlife Group, said “We will be meeting and parking at the southern car park off the B1083, from where we will take a walk looking out for spring wildlife. Participants should wear stout shoes and trousers, and bring binoculars. There is no need to book for this walk, which is suitable for adults and children aged 10+. The walk is free, with donations to Suffolk Wildlife Trust appreciated.

Later in the month, Suffolk’s otters take centre stage when members of Suffolk Otter Group join the Group for an evening talk at Woodbridge Community Hall on Thursday 21 April at 7.30 pm.

Meg Amsden and Nicky Rowbottom from Suffolk Otter Group said “Otters pass up and down our streams and rivers and know them like the back of their paws – but we rarely see them because they’re mostly active at night. Trail cameras have brought a revolution to our understanding of where these elusive animals are and what they get up to”.

Phil Smith said “Using first hand data, photos and a film – Caught in the Act – Meg and Nicky will be telling some of the story of otters in Suffolk. This should be a very interesting evening”.

Mr Smith added “Doors open at 7 pm with the talk starting at 7.30 pm. Entry to the talk is £3 for adults, with under 25’s free. Refreshments will be served during the evening. All are welcome and there is no requirement to book for this talk. “
