Amazing work by everyone who entered - we were astonished by just how many wild things people had found.
Runaway winner of the adult Bingo was Jocelyn Nichols with an astonishingly unassailable score of 2832, nearly double her nearest rival. Her eagle eyes spotted several species that nobody else did. Champion spotting!
In a much more close-run kids’ version of the Bingo, Millie & Evie Hassard emerged triumphant. Great work!
Jocelyn receives a bird box and Millie & Evie a hedgehog house courtesy of the Parish Council. Prizes will be delivered very shortly.
See the great photos contributed by our Bingo players!
We are all very lucky to live in a special place. To help keep it special for generations to come we want to keep an eye on the health of Priston’s natural environment. The presence (or absence) of wild things - whether flowers, animals, insects or birds - is a great indicator of health. The more biodiversity the better. We’d love to find a regular way to measure the abundance (or not) of species here.
Many people have participated in No Mow May, making it possible for wildflowers and pollinators to take up residence here. In turn that makes the place more of a haven for birds and other animals.
Between 28th May and 8th June we invite everyone to get out and spot the wild things - there are PRIZES to be won.
Note: Names of winners and photos will be published unless otherwise requested.
“Priston” means anywhere within a 45 minute walk from the village green. Walruses spotted in Tenby don’t count.
