Avon Wildlife Safari Day 11 - Go on a Wildlife Boat trip

Billed as 'A stunning and unique trip that must have lots of wildlife to offer as it was on the BBC's Countryfile programme!' this really is a great opportunity to travel along the river with Ed Drewitt, a fantastic guide with a huge amount of wildlife knowledge.


The Waterside Wildlife boat trips run throughout the summer, so grab your binoculars and book yourself on a guided tour of the river Avon. Starting in the harbour the boat will travel out into the River Avon, under the Clifton Suspension Bridge and on towards Avonmouth. You will have the opportunity to spot redshanks, herons, ravens, peregrine falcons and buzzards in their natural habitat as well as foxes and deer. The Gorge is lined with a mixture of ancient woodland and pasture with an abundance of flora and fauna, the cliffs being home to a host of unique plants including the Bristol rock-cress and the western spiked speedwell.

This is sure to be a popular event so do check the website for dates.
