Nothing says Autumn like conkers! Did you know that mature horse chestnut trees can live for up to 300 years? 🌳 They are not actually native to the UK, but were first introduced from Turkey in the late 16th century & have since become naturalised!

Riverside Walk this morning - not just one Otter, but two, possibly mother and cub. Swam around for several minutes, very unconcerned, even looking right at me. Bit exciting...

The planning changes don't acknowledge nature or its importance to people, so we can't have confidence that the proposals will help to achieve the we so desperately want and need🌍🌾💚 More 👉

Our habitats on land have a huge role to play in addressing climate change. Globally, plants have removed 25% of human-made carbon emissions, whilst our soils contain more carbon than is stored in those plants and the atmosphere combined!🤯

Looking for a fun idea for this weekend? Make a butterfly painting! Being creative & engaging with nature can help us feel better at a difficult time. You could try to create a butterfly or moth from this ID guide!

Autumn is a great time for fungi spotting! Keep a look out for all sorts of interesting mushrooms in the coming months, especially on our woodland reserves. Dommett Wood in or Aller & Beer Woods near Langport are both good places to try!

From to coastal heaths, red deer are getting ready for their mating season. It all kicks off after dawn with stags bellowing to dominate their rivals. The bigger the stag the louder the call. Turn the sound on for this one 🦌

Make a log pile in a shady part of the garden to attract insects & create a safe place for a toad or hedgehog to spend the winter. Your logs will also eventually sprout fungi – nature’s recycling system for turning dead wood back into soil!
