Wild West End intro

What is the Wild West End Project?

It is a two year project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to see whether we have hedgehogs, swifts, house martins and bats living in Wingrove and Arthur’s Hill. All of these creatures are classified as ‘at risk’ as the numbers of them are declining in Britain. We want to understand where they nest, where they eat and where they sleep in the winter (hedgehogs and bats) so that together we can make the West End a better place for them.

What are our plans for 2020?

Our Swift, Housemartin and Bat surveying is underway, adapted to the lockdown.

Please click the green buttons on the right to find out more!

Also, please keep sending your sightings of swifts, hedgehogs, bats and housemartins with date, time and location (email below).

The project is running 1000 David Attenboroughs during lock down. Every week we set tasks to help you develop your ecology skills. If you would like to receive the tasks join our mailing list by emailing or follow us on facebook
