From Friday 29th April to Monday 2nd May, experience a holiday like no other when you join Wild Days Conservation for a weekend of monitoring, mapping and surveying on the beautiful Suffolk coast.

You will stay in the beautifully renovated farm buildings of Bridge Barn in the village of Dunwich, surrounded by heathland, salt marshes and the sea.

The village of Dunwich is the ideal base for your holiday with an intriguing historical past; once a busy port in the 13th century, the town was lost to the sea and is now underwater. Legend has it that you can still hear the church bells ringing from under the sea on particularly stormy nights.

Your experience will take place at nearby RSPB Minsmere, home to BBC Springwatch, and The National Trust's Dunwich Heath, working on a particular species; the Pirri pirri bur and studying the Dartford Warbler.

You will also be able to see for yourself the characters and places that the BBC Springwatch cameras will be filming later that month, as well as sample local food and ales at nearby pubs and restaurants.
