Wildlife themed events for April 2023

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group are planning a walk and a talk during April 2023.

On Saturday 1 April the group will be holding a Spring Woodland Walk at Pound Farm Wood, Great Glemham, IP17 2DP, starting at 9.30am. Chairman Phil Smith said “We will be walking around this interesting mixed woodland looking for spring flowers and wildlife. We are grateful to The Woodland Trust, who have given us permission to hold this walk.” 

“The walk starts from the Pound Farm car park (TM 322630) and will last for approximately two hours. Places on this walk are strictly limited and must be pre-booked by contacting Suffolk Wildlife Trust. The cost is £5 per person with under 25’s free, and bookings can be made online through: www.suffolkwildlifetrust.org (events section) or by telephoning them on: 01473 890 089. The walk is suitable for children over ten. No Dogs except assistance dogs. Participants are advised to wear sturdy waterproof footwear (as the ground may be uneven) and bring binoculars. Parking is limited so if participants can share transport it will be appreciated.

Then on Thursday, 20 April the group present an update on one of Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s major reserves when Matt Gooch, Sites Manager for North East Suffolk gives a talk entitled “Carlton Marshes – Heritage funding to booming bitterns”  at Woodbridge Community Hall, Station Road, IP12 4AU, starting at 7.30pm. Phil Smith said “Suffolk Wildlife Trust have an ambitious vision to create 1,000 acres of wildness at this reserve, and we will look forward to hearing from Matt how wildlife is responding to this newly created habitat.” 

During the evening there will be a raffle and refreshments. Doors open at 7pm and there is no need to book for this talk. For further information on either event please contact Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Woodbridge Wildlife Group on: swtwoodbridge@outlook.com.
