Wild Weedon - Weedon Wildlife Group
Who are Wild Weedon?
Weedon Wildlife Group - otherwise known as "Wild Weedon" - aims to protect and promote the wellbeing of wildlife and nature in and around Weedon village.
Run by volunteers, we're a friendly bunch who welcome new members; you can have as much - or as little - involvement as you like!
Our tasks involve:
- Mapping and observing wildlife
- Getting stuck in with building birdhouses, hedgehog homes, bug hotels etc
- Planning and running events and activities

June 2021 Wildflower Trail
On Sunday 27th June, despite non-flaming-June weather, a Wildflower Trail around the village was another great success.
May Meeting with Bucks Owl and Raptor Group
The meeting included a presentation by Norman Shephard from the Bucks Owl and Raptor Group (BORG) about the owls and raptors we might encounter around Weedon, their activities, and how we humans in Weedon might help.
April Nest Box Workshop
Hot on its heels, we gathered a team of Weedon volunteers to construct bird boxes suited to Robins and Blue Tits. We had a productive - and fun! - afternoon. Thanks fot Colin and Joanna Rose for lending the workshop, and to Paul Winrow for organising and providing the tools.
2021 Easter Nature Trail
Despite the chilly weather, over 50 folk of all ages followed the Trail – written in rhyme!! - along some of the Public Footpaths around the village, ending with a goodie bag for the young-in-heart with easter eggs and a certificate! A really fun first event for Wild Weedon!!
