We want to know what species are present in our parish and where they are. To find out, we will be doing some organised surveys, but also we want to encourage everyone to record what they see.
We have chosen 20 species that we are especially interested in knowing more about and we are making the reporting of these as easy as possible.
We are offering two methods for reporting sightings. The easiest, which can be used for our ’20 Selected Species’ is via our website form below
The other method is via iRecord which requires more detail but goes directly to a national biological recording system that we can retrieve data from - but you’ll need to add our activity code when you fill in the form.
Here are some suggested walks in and around the parish. They all start from the Perch and Pike pub in the middle of South Stoke village and are circular. They are between 5 and 10km long with the shortest taking an hour and a half and the longest about 3 hours. The terrain is not difficult, but can be very muddy and there are stiles to cross in places; there are also a few small road sections so please be very mindful of cars, motorbikes and bicycles. All the routes are on public rights of way except for the road sections.
