The Wildlife Trust and Ely Wildspace have teamed up to host a 24-hour bioblitz.
The event will see a full day of activities to record and measure as many plant and animal species as possible in Ely’s Roswell Pits and Common areas.
The bioblitz begins on July 3 with a bird walk, starting at 6pm at Ely Sailing Club, and continued with a bat walk, hoverflies and moth trapping, continuing right up until midnight.
Activities resume again at 6am the following morning with a dawn chorus walk and bird ringing at Pocket Park and continues throughout the day with a whole host of activities, including minibeast hunts, spider surveys, ladybird hunts and wildlife crafts.
A spokesman for Ely Wildspace said: “We have loads of activities for you to book onto which will help you find out more about the plants and animals that live on site and how you can identify them in your own wildspaces.”
