One of our highlights of the year returns on Saturday 4th August 2018!
Go Wild at Drove is an event in collaboration with the the Norfolk Ornithologists' Association. Join us in celebrating local wildlife and we'll be offering our visitors the chance to get up close and personal with birds, insects and plantlife. The day will be about honouring native species of the surrounding areas of Drove Orchards.
The Norfolk Ornithologists’ Association, whose base at Holme Bird Observatory will be on site to bring close encounters with birds, moths, butterflies, and caterpillars. Guided walks around the orchards and around the wildlife-rich areas of the farm will take place during the day, and there will be lots of information and activities available at the big barn. This includes the chance for visitors to be ‘ringed’and find out some of the amazing journeys made by migrant birds that have visited Drove in recent years.
The event will run between 10:00am and 4:00pm, taking place in the big barn just behind the farm shop car parking area. There will be indoor and outdoor displays, activities and goody bags for kids, and fun for all the family.
