What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz is a great opportunity to get your family out in nature and to join us as we survey our grounds to discover the many different species of plants and animals that call the Trust home. The results of these surveys help us to better understand how special our grounds are and how best to protect all the species that live here.

“Whatever the size and scope of a BioBlitz event, it can produce valuable data which can be submitted to local and national data collection centres. Since 2012, BIAZA members have recorded over 1000 plant species and 2000 wild animal species on our sites!”

Book your tickets for a fantastic day out in the countryside for all the family. Make sure you arrive early to make the most of our full daily timetable!

Like other species of eagle owl, the Siberian Eagle Owl has ear tufts which aren’t actually ears at all, but are feathers that are raised or lowered according to the bird’s mood.
