BioBlitz at Carnoustie Golf Links

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - June 28 @ 7:00 pm


Join us at Carnoustie Golf Links on Thursday 27th June and Friday 28th June 2024 for the first ever Golf BioBlitz, sponsored by the R&A Foundation. Discover the wildlife lurking in the rough as we explore sand dunes, heath, woodlands, and wetlands around the golf courses to try and record as much as we can in 24 hours! Bring binoculars, magnifying glasses, and anything else that may help you find a variety of flora and fauna, big and small.

Join us on the Thursday evening from 7pm for an evening bird walk lead by Angus and Dundee Bird Club (TBC) followed by a Bat Walk at 10:30pm to find bat hotspots on the golf courses – don’t forget to bring a torch!

On Friday 28th June, we’ll kick things off by finding out which moths have been caught in our overnight moth traps, followed by self-led sessions along a designated BioBlitz route meandering through an array of habitats. Small breakout sessions to identify butterflies, check hedgehog tunnels, and more will also take place during the main day with the main programme TBD.

ID guides and books will be available to use and there will be a handful of experts on hand to help with identification. You may just discover a whole new passion!

Please download the iRecord app to your phone or tablet to log your records on the day. We will then collate everyone’s records together at the end of the BioBlitz to find out how well we have done!
