We are fortunate to have a number of organised groups focusing on wildlife in general and hedgehogs within the Bristol area.
The first of these groups was the BS3 wildlife Group organised by My Wild Bedminster and the follow on groups have copied the Postcode based format as it’s easy to remember and obvious to those without detailed knowledge of Bristol’s local areas.
The areas covered by our Postcode Based Wildlife groups are shaded orange in the map below

Make your own contributions to wildlife reporting
We encourage using iNaturalist as a tool for identifying and recording wildlife. Our aim is to create an iNaturalist Project for each Group so folk can see what has been recorded within the group area.
To add records to a local group, just record as normal and the records will automatically appear in the group’s project unless you’ve set them to hidden ( for example if you’re recording a protected species like a great crested newt)

South Bristol Bat Group
We’re a local group of bat enthusiasts located in the BS3, BS4, BS13 and BS14 postcodes!
The objective of the group is to monitor and record bats in the local area and to promote positive bat awareness and conservation.
A forum for people in Bristol and the surrounding areas of BANES, South Gloucs, North Somerset, SE Wales (Monmouthshire, Newport, Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan), Gloucs, Wilts and Somerset to swop wildlife records and talk about wildlife in our area only. We are not a campaigning group.
RSPB Bristol Local Group
We’re a local volunteer group celebrating Bristol’s green spaces and supporting the work of the RSPB in our local community. Our events and activities are open to RSPB members and non-members alike; from fully-fledged self-confessed bird nerds, to those just beginning to discover the wildlife in and around the city. You can keep yourself in the loop by signing up for our monthly newsletter, or by following along on social media – feel free to get in touch! https://linktr.ee/rspb_bristol
