Species List 2021

These are all the species recorded by our members in 2021. You can read about all of these in our various quarterly blogs (see our Wildlife Blogs page for the complete set).

Do keep sending us your sightings, whether common or rare. We’d like to celebrate the wonderful wildlife in our local area. You can post your sightings on our group Facebook page or add them to our web site (using  our Wildlife Sightings recording form). We love to see your photos as well, and would like to use them in the quarterly blogs (always with a photo credit to the photographer of course).
