Since Easter Sunday’s devastating bombings we have been receiving telephone calls and emails from Naturetrek customers concerned about our partners, naturalists and staff in Sri Lanka, with whom many of us have travelled over the years. We are very relieved to be able to confirm that all of them, and their families, are safe and unharmed, despite reporting to us the on-going fear that continues to grip the people of Sri Lanka in the aftermath of these appalling terror attacks.

Staff at the Naturetrek office recently carried out a small mammal survey in the nearby woodlands of the Chawton House estate. Our field site consisted of 7.5 acres of ancient woodland surrounded by agricultural fields and grazing pasture. These creatures are important indicator species for the health of an ecosystem, supporting many other species, such as birds of prey, especially Barn Owls.
