Chudleigh Bioblitz

Don’t forget about this exciting event. It will be held at the marquee at Fore Street Park and runs from 12 noon on Friday 1 July to 12.noon on Saturday 2nd July.

If you’re been watching Springwatch on BBC2 you will have a good idea what a Bioblitz entails. It’s about finding out what animals and insects are around in your local area and learning more about them

Help us to record as many species of animal and plant as possible in Chudleigh over a 24 hour period by bringing your records to the marquee so we can add them to the total

Activities based in the Chudfest marquee include

  • What have we caught in the moth traps?
  • What animals have photographed themselves with our stealth cameras?
  • The plants of Chudleigh – bring us small samples and we’ll identify them for you
  • Amazing Mini-beasts
  • What small mammals have we caught in our live traps?
  • What lives in the soil? See the extraordinary world of soil creepy crawlies
  • Which bats have left their calls on our bat detector?

Guided activities around the parish include

  • Churchyard mini-beast safari
  • Wildlife walk around the woods and fields close to town
  • Town wildlife walk – what lives in the built-up parts of Chudleigh
  • Evening bat walk – see and hear some of Chudleigh’s internationally important bats
  • Chudleigh School environmental area – come and see exciting recent developments

Activities in the marquee run throughout the event

Guide activity times and locations will be published nearer the time
