Wildflower walks back for 2024 and we'll be looking for insects as well this year - what will we find?

As usual we will be using the iRecord App to capture important local data.


Everyone is welcome to join in, no experience necessary. See our schedule on our events and surveys page and come along.




South Stoke Swifts

In March/April we will be putting up 10 new swift nest boxes to support the local population.


We are happy to announce that we can now share John's awesome presentation at the Why iRecord? Virtual Symposium


How iRecord Helps a Local Wildlife Group - John Lindley


South Stoke Wildlife & Conservation Group are trying to monitor biodiversity within our village. This presentation covers our recording activities, how we identify what we've found, and our experiences of using iRecord. We aim to use the information we gather to monitor trends for some of the key species that are present in our village.
