Big Washlands Watch

The TTTV (Transforming the Trent Valley) scheme is encouraging local people to become involved in a biological recording survey, the idea being to record sightings of 32 chosen species of animals and plants, ranging from kingfishers to bee orchids. Lawrence has some packs available containing a survey booklet and a colour identification guide, if you missed these at the BCV meeting.

If you spot any of the 32 target species, you can report what you have seen by taking a photo and uploading it to the Biological Records Centre’s iRecord website or by installing the iRecord app on your smartphone.

You can read more details about the survey in the TTTV blog.
