Woodland Festival details

At 11am help to parade the King of the Flycatchers back to his Dartmoor woodland with colourful artwork made by local school children. The flycatcher is an iconic species for the nature reserve and our Dartmoor woodlands. These birds have flown thousands of miles from West Africa, alongside many other species, to breed here.

From 11.30am onwards, discover more about flycatchers and other extraordinary wildlife at this wild and wonderful day at East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve. Go on a minibeast hunt, try pond dipping, take part in hands on activities, make wonderful wildlife crafts, get an experts view of the woods, and meet people who are wild about wildlife.
