September’s revival of warm sunny weather gave our supporters lots of good surveying opportunities, resulting in our Find Wildlife From Home survey surpassing 300 wildlife record submissions!
We hope to make the most of future warm days to come by surveying for as long as possible, and look forward to continuing more dusk bat surveys while the weather is still bat-friendly! Subscribe as a volunteer to hear about these events, first.
