A fascinating new look at Knettishall Heath

Biofluorescence Walk at Knettishall

On Friday 24th November, 16 intrepid explorers gathered at SWT’s Knettishall Heath Country Park for the second Biofluorescence Night Walk, led by David Atthowe from Reveal Nature. Lit by a bright moon and ultraviolet light from their torches, the group had a fascinating walk into the woods to see a whole new world lit by otherworldly biofluorescent colours. Highlights included the Sulphur Tuft fungus that shone like molten gold around its edges, various small caterpillars, and the amazing colours of every plants and leaves. The event left participants keen to do more, and to come back at other times of year, when new seasonal sights and wonders will hopefully be on show.
