About The Event
As the weather begins to turn the farm starts to come alive and March is a lovely time to join us with Nick as we explore this ever-changing habitat. Our winter visitors will be leaving and spring will be in the air, with birds singing and plants beginning to flourish. Join us with Nick as we take a stroll around the farm and learn about the wonderful flora and fauna making it their home.
Nick has had an interest in wildlife and birds in particular for more than forty years. After pursuing a non-wildlife career in Accountancy and many years of volunteering as a warden for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, he decided to work for the RSPB as a Research Assistant, then working on and running the Wessex Stone-curlew Project before heading to Newcastle to be the Area Conservation Manager for Northeast England, Yorkshire & The Humber. The latter job led to many days inside doing spreadsheets, just like accountancy! So Nick decided to return to Wiltshire where he is now freelance naturalist working with landowners to help them bring wildlife into their thought processes and leading walks for people new to wildlife watching, but wanting to try it out. Having studied a number of taxa over the years besides birds, Nick was offered a Fellowship by the British Naturalist Association in recognition of his all-round knowledge. He is also currently the Wiltshire county bird recorder, helping people understand what birds they are seeing and what they can do to see more.
In line with current government guidance, we are limiting these walks to smaller groups. We are also unable to share our equipment so please bring your own binoculars/observation equipment.
Ticket includes a warm drink on arrival and guided walk with Nick Adams
