MILLENNIUM COUNTRY PARK, MARSTON MORETAINE

Tucked inside the Forest Centre is 'Spotters corner', an area where wildlife sightings can be recorded so that we (and you) can keep a month-by-month list of what species have visited the Park. Each calendar month we record and clear the board, ready for the next lot of wildlife spots!

If you're visiting and see a species to note then please add it to the clipboard with as much detail as possible for our volunteers to verify and update the blackboard, then check back here on the website for the updated list each month!
