A great opportunity to be a ranger for the day. Help monitor the moths that live on Orford Ness, count and check our flock of rare breed sheep with our sheep dog. Sweep and learn how we manage the landscape to make it such an important site for wading and migrating birds. Dissect owl pellets to help discover what small mammals live on site and carry out wildlife camera checks to see what our wildlife is up to when we aren’t around. For children aged 5-12 years. Please note: Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who must book a ticket for the ferry crossing.
