Wickford Wildlife Society - Latest News

Forthcoming Wildlife Events for Your Diary:

Quiz Champions 2018!

I am very pleased to report that our Wickford Wildlife Society team won the 2018 Inter-Society Quiz. Congratulations to them and thanks to all who turned up to support them. One of our members also won the audience prize but modesty prevents me naming him!! 

We are hosting the Quiz next year and will be defending the trophy, so that's something to look forward to.

Next Indoor Meeting - Wednesday 11th April 2018 - The Greater World of Little Things – Ross Gardner.

Local Naturalist Ross Gardner will use his latest book to enlighten us about the many and varied ways we might experience the natural world. One that looks to encourage a different view of the supposedly normal or simply just a better look at what we know. For more details of Ross's book please click the link below:


NOTE - Parking. You are all aware of the parking issues at the Church recently. From April a private company will be managing the parking at the Church and Hall and a parking permit will be needed. We will be contacting all of our members with the details of the new arrangements.

Fieldfares and other winter visitors!

I am sure that many of you will have had some unusual birds in the garden during the recent bad weather. If you have any photos please let me know and I'll add them to the website. We had 50+ Fieldfares around the house one day and managed to attract some of them onto the garden with apples. I managed to get a few photos which you can see by viewing our Members Wildlife Photos page. These are our largest Thrush species and they look great in the snow. Keep your eyes open as a few are still around together with their Redwing cousins, even though spring is on its way - I heard a Chiffchaff at Hanningfield this week and a few Swallows have been reported too!
