Both the Warden and the Friends carry out wildlife counts. You need to know what wildlife is visiting the reserve so you can manage the land effectively. These counts also feed into national wildlife records. There are at least two counts per month. You can read more about the Friends’ wildlife counts and download a spotting card on our Wildlife Monitoring page.

Anyone is welcome to join us but we recommend that you contact us to confirm time and meeting place contact us. Whatever your experience this is a great opportunity to learn about the wildlife.
The reserve is managed by North Somerset Council. The Council employs a warden who is responsible for maintaining the nature reserve and with so much to do he needs volunteers. The meeting place is normally Wharf Lane car park (BS20 7TD). Tools, gloves and refreshments will be provided.
