Whilst visiting Whitlingham I have recorded over 1100 species, and have decided to turn these records into a series of downloadable species guides and checklists. In some cases I have been able to add in records from the county database and/or local naturalists. These guides will be updated periodically to add new records and information. Feel free to download thesm 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).
Birds - there is no guide for birds as Justin & I are hoping to compose that one in book form, however I compile an annual bird report, and 2012-2017 reports are all available to download.
