Bucklebury Nature Watch


Nature Watch Poster

At the heart of Bucklebury parish, part of the North Wessex Downs AONB, Bucklebury Common and its surrounding area make up over 345 hectares of wonderfully diverse habitats, from ancient broad-leaved woodlands and heaths to secluded streams and gullies.

This year, we ask you to help us celebrate its beauty and importance by cataloguing the species that live within our wonderful parish.

All species are important to us, but of particular interest are the rare and declining ones, such as Nightjar, Woodcock, Woodlark, Hedgehog, Hazel Dormouse, Adder, Slow worm, Grass Snake and all Newts and Bats.
