2015 marks ten years since I first started visiting Whitlingham and Thorpe. To mark this anniversary I am reworking my species pages into downloadable guides. Feel free to download these and print them off if you find them useful.
As always if you spot any mistakes, can add information or have seen something that I am not aware of then please email me (details on the main blog).
There won't be a guide for birds, as Justin & I are hoping to compose that one in book form.
I have so far completed the following guides, which you can now download.
