Spent a lot of the weekend at the Sutton Ecology Center Bioblitz. We recorded over 300 species in 24 hours using various methods including Sweep netting, Pit Fall Traps, Small Mammal Traps, Survey Mats, Bat Detectors, Moth Traps and even tried some Worm Charming.
The aim of the event was to promote species recording to the public, bring local wildlife groups together and showcase the Biodiversity Gardens Project and the Garden Survey Initiative.
