Hedgehogs, bats (the noctule bat) and butterflies (specifically the white admiral) are just three of the 20 species that have been chosen to be part of the local Biodiversity Action Plan.

Brian Clews, one of WildCookham's resident wildlife experts, will explain what action is taking place to help the bumblebees, kingfishers and slow worms and other species that are on the Biodiversity Action Plan.

Other species include the oak tree, house sparrow, common toad, early purple orchid and the stag beetle. The range of flora and fauna on the list is very varied, some things are common and easily identified, others, like the great crested newt, are extremely hard to come by.

This promises to be a very informative and entertaining talk on how we can save the planet, 20 species at a time!

Tea and coffee will be provided. This is a free event, but as ever a £3 donation is suggested.
