BioBlitz Streatham

Broadcaster, naturalist and University of Exeter Alumnus Nick Baker led a group of over 150 volunteering students, academics, members of the public and Devon Wildlife Trust experts for the first ever Bioblitz at the University of Exeter.

During the event, Nick Baker was joined by his former lecturers Dr Clive Betts and Professor Charles Tyler. Numerous other academics and researchers from the College of Life and Environmental Sciences supported the event with their expertise. Mammalian biology lecturer and licensed bat handler Dr Fiona Mathews showed two bats that she had brought in from home, although brown long-eared, Daubenton's, common pipistrelle, lesser horseshoe and soprano pipistrelle bats have been recorded on campus in the past. Dr Mark Ramsdale identified over fifty different fungi including some bright red fly agarics.
