On the 8th August the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS) is teaming up with the staff of Brandon Country Park to host a Bioblitz in and around the park grounds. SBIS with its close ties to the Suffolk Naturalists’ Society has enlisted the support of several county experts to lead wildlife walks and to help identify and record as many different species as possible on the day. The provisional programme will see expertise covering the following taxon groups; plants, butterflies, bees and wasps, fungi, aquatic invertebrates, flies, moths and lichens plus many more. The day is open to all - experts or novices - with the chance for you to have a go at biological recording yourself. Join us on the day to help us record as many species as possible.
