Target species for 2009-10

Following the success of the surveys carried out as part of the Neighbourhood Nature Watch project, we would like to highlight a few more species that we'd like to know more about. The species include birds, butterflies, mammals and plants and each has been selected for different reasons. Some are quite common but we lack information on their distribution Others are of local or national conservation concern or pose a threat to other species and habitats. Remeber that these are only our suggestions, and we would be delighted to receive records of ANY species you can confidently identify.
