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.

Who grew the tallest sunflower?
We had 28 entries, we hope you all had fun growing your sunflowers :-).
The winner this year was Maeve with a sunflower measuring 205cm in height - well done Maeve! You can see photos of the winning sunfower on this page.
What can I do with my sunflower once it's finished flowering?
You can keep some of the seeds to grow sunflowers next year.
You can leave the seed head in your garden for the birds to enjoy over winter.
Did you know?
Sunflowers are so called because throughout the course of the day they follow the sun; twisting their faces to track it across the sky to absorb its powerful energy.
