As well as organising occasional bird and bat walks, and BFC ranger-led walks to explore the highways and byways of rural Warfield, WEG has been involved in the Bracknell Veteran Tree Surveying. To date we have surveyed over 150 trees. More details are here.
The Warfield Fete is held in June each year, and WEG runs a stall there in order to raise its profile within the community. In recent years we have held activities for the children – making bee hotels, nest boxes and stone painting. The fete committee generously provide us with a donation for our attendance at the fete.
Biodiversity Action Plan
WEG have contributed to the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) for Bracknell Forest. We have pledged to help towards some of the targets, most notably:
- Newt surveying
- Noctule bat surveying
- Tree and hedge planting
- Hedgehog highways
- Nest and bat box making and erection
We hold events to make nest boxes for birds and bats. We then put these up around Warfield – in Hayley Green Wood, Edmunds Green and Thomas Lawrence Newt Reserve.
We have recently started to map where the nest boxes are and who is living in them.
Take a look.
We are making bat boxes to put up around the local area. Part of the Biodiversity Action Plan.
