Howardian Bioblitz / survey day

 We used to call them wildlife surveys, but the "in" term these days seems to be bioblitz 

Anyway when you get a whole load of eyes on the plant and animal life in one location with people of all abilities calling out what they have noticed and a scattering of experts along to help with the trickier identifications you can find a whole load of things and add them to the records for the site 

CNS members recently went to the Howardian Local Nature reserve with the friends of the reserve and spent a valuable few hours looking for and identifying things and we have a nice new species list on our website to show for it 

The Friends group already have an impressive list on their website, but if you look carefully you can find things on this new list that are not as yet on the howardian site (we are sure they will update to include them soon, so by the time you read this it could be updated)

There will be a full write up of the day in the next newsletter, but for now why not take a look at what we found and enjoy these pictures taken by Rob and Linda Nottage
