Wildflower SOS – Be a Meadow Maker (online talk)

Did you know you can create a valuable wildflower patch – however small your outdoor space?

In our next Wildlife in the Red online talk, Matt Pitts of the charity, Plantlife, will outline why wildflower meadows have declined so drastically over the last 70 years. He’ll highlight recent efforts to restore meadows – and show how anyone can create and manage a wildflower patch, whether in a public space, garden, or even on a balcony.  

The talk takes place on Thurs 29 April, 7.30pm. It’s free, but booking is essential.

Wild Life in the Red

What do you think about our exhibition?

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
