Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery at Langmere, near Dickleburgh, is holding its annual free wildlife weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
Suffolk moth recorder Tony Pritchard will run Moth Night on Saturday from 9pm-11pm. Visitors are encouraged to bring along some chairs and a bottle of wine and sit back in the tranquil surroundings of the Barn Garden at Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery while Tony uses light traps to attract a range of moths into the garden. As well as the moths visitors will be surrounded by ducks, geese, storks and cranes that also live in the gardens.
On Sunday from 10am-2pm British Trust for Ornithology bird ringer David Fuller will catch a range of garden birds as part of the BTO's ringing scheme. David will also talk about the house sparrow projects that are based at Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery and how people can encourage birds into the garden.
This free event is suitable for all ages and will allow visitors to get close and personal to some familiar garden birds.
