We do not mind you picking a few berries and mushrooms for your own use. However, some of our sites are SSSI's and there are strict rules on collecting and removing anything and often written permission is required.
Collecting should be limited and do not pick everything.
Collecting and picking flowers is not acceptable.
Commercial groups would need to contact the Trust and gain written permission in advance.
Yes, we sell a number of items direct from the reserves.
Our coppice management generates items such as pea and bean sticks and sustainable firewood. We also undertake some forestry work and produce bags of kindling and logs in various sizes.
Occasionally we have larger logs that may be suitable for cabinet making and turning (especially oak and cherry). We also cut several willow beds and generate bundles of living willow that could be used for structures, planting fedges, basket making etc.
We harvest seed direct from our meadows and often have quantities that we can sell.
We use the apples from our wildlife-rich orchards and sell bottles of Wiltshire Apple juice.
Occasionally, we have meat to sell from our sheep and cattle.
Yes, we welcome groups visits but please book in advance with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. This avoids embarrassing situations when the site is closed for management or other groups have already booked in advance. We would ask that a small donation is made towards the upkeep of the reserve.
If you would like a Reserve Officer to guide you or meet you on site this can often be arranged for a small charge.
Typically no, however, it may be possible in some cases after written permission has been obtained from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
Yes, we welcome well-behaved dogs on our site. We ask that owners are responsible and keep dogs on a short lead and pick up after their dog(s). Dogs are not allowed onto Langford Lakes or Blakehill Farm.
This may be possible in some cases but only after written permission has been obtained from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
Please read our drone policy before contacting us for permission.

Watch Members (junior members) are issued with a membership card, however, adult members do not get issued a membership card.
Although each year is different, the peak flowering season for the snake's-head fritillary is in late April to early May. Fritillaries can be seen at WWT's Clattinger Farm and Upper Waterhay reserves. The Upper Waterhay population is unusual in that 80% of the flowers are cream-coloured.
Yes, we do surveys on a commercial basis: contact our consultancy - Chalkhill Environmental Consultants. Even better all profits are reinvested in Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
Currently, the Night Fishing Group at Langford Lakes is closed as we have a long waiting list.
Day tickets are available for the Brockbank, they cost £10.00 per day and only two are available each day and they must be booked in advance.
Fishing is from 08:00 until 1 hour before dusk.

Unfortunately, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust doesn't have the facilities to help with injured animals, however, there are some fantastic animal hospitals in Wiltshire that are always willing to help.
