Incredible Insects Week



Wild Weekend
Saturday 23rd to Sunday 24th May

Holkham National Nature Reserve, almost 10,000 acres of richly diverse habitats, and home to a unique range of flora and fauna, will be hosting its inaugural Wild Weekend. Focussing on the specialist species, changing habitats and amazing breeding successes of the North Norfolk coast, this event will be a chance for the whole family to engage with the wild, learn from conservation and wildlife specialists and explore the reserve at first-hand.

Magnificent Moths
Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th May

Help us identify some of the magnificent moths that have been attracted, in the dead of night, to our moth traps. Find out where they hide up during the day and marvel at their spectacular larvae.

Dazzling Dragonflies
Thursday 28th and Friday

Learn about the amazing lifecycle of dragonflies and be amazed at their carnivorous ferocity, deep in the depths of your local pond.

Brilliant Bees
Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st

Discover just how important and diverse our populations of bees are. Did you know that a single red mason bee is equivalent to 120 worker honeybees in the pollination it provides? Make your very own solitary bee home to benefit the bees in your garden.
