August’s Results: Find Wildlife From Home Survey

While August was not a predictable month for the weather, our volunteers were reliable in recording and submitting their wildlife sightings. In the fifth month of our survey, a total of 69 records were submitted!

We now have volunteers regularly contributing their wildlife sightings, seen at FLOW project improved wetland sites – it’s great to see the results of your landscaping work supporting a wide range of species. Well done to all who braved the wild weather to carry out their surveys, last month!

If you are interested in wildlife recording, our FLOW project team are currently looking for volunteers to independently survey the following sites:

~ Rymans House pond in Apuldram
~ Easton Lane at the Sidlesham/ Earnley parish border
~ The relic canal in NorthMundham

Contact us at flow@mwhg.org.uk to learn more about independent surveying.
