Jono Forgham will lead nature walks for children and adults on Sunday, June 27 at the Gardens of Easton Lodge at Little Easton near Great Dunmow.
He hopes to have owl pellets for dissection and his MOTD (moths of the day) to identify and release.
Participants can hunt for bugs and identify birdsong and butterflies. There is also a children’s trail.
Many species of butterfly, dragon and damselflies and moths are attracted into the gardens. The hummingbird hawk moth is a regular summer visitor and seven species of bat have been recorded.
Essex Bat Group will be present with Norbert, a rescued noctule, along with the RSPB, Essex Wildlife Trust and the Woodland Trust.
