Come along to Bere Marsh Farm and learn all about the 6 species of native reptile found in the UK with the CRT’s in-house expert - Nick Dobbs.   

Nick will begin with a presentation talk in the barn before leading the group on a guided nature walk of Bere Marsh Farm including an opportunity to look for reptiles under survey tins known as ACOs (Artificial Cover Objects).

The circular walk around the farm will include the main trailway plus a visit to the beautiful Angela Hughes Nature Reserve. Only open to the public by appointment, the Angela Hughes Nature Reserve was formerly part of the North Dorset & Somerset Railway Line which nature and wildlife is now reclaiming.

With so much to remember on the day, we will give everyone a UK reptile information sheet to take home.
