One of the activities we do in the Society is make and keep records of the wildllife that occurs in the area. This is building into an important historical archive, so we can compare current distributions against those in the past and spot trends. This is of particular value as we start to see the effects of global warming.
We would like to encourage everyone to help us gather these records. Please use the form below to add anything of interest you see in our area (the Submit button is at the bottom). The results are fed automatically into a spreadsheet that allows our Recorders to analyse the data for each particular group of species such as plants or birds. You can view a summary of submissions so far for this year here (please note it may take a few minutes to be updated). Any particularly unusual, unlikely or rare species will have to be validated by the Recorders.
You can see the records for previous years:
You can also see my personal records if you are interested: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016
