I’ve really enjoyed the many different experiences I have had whilst volunteering at Eycott Hill.
When I started out I got many comments on the state of my back pack which was pretty small got very grubby very fast and fell apart in its first week. It took me back today when I got an email from one of the volunteers wishing me and my back pack well in the future.
One of the first things I did was attend a wildflower identification course; the skills I picked up during the course were very helpful because the next few weeks were mainly taken up by surveying the vegetation at Eycott Hill, putting my newly learned wildflower knowledge to the test. Since then I have been on a moth identification course, iRecord training and s fungi identification course.
