What is the Big Year all about
The Big Year is an attempt to catalogue and record as many species, their location and their status, whether breeding, migratory or resident. We will be recording as many of the plants, insects, birds and mammals as possible as well as other taxa such as fungi, bryophytes and even slugs! Throughout the year there will be opportunity to get involved in some community events, walks and workshops. We hope to have experts available to lead these events and pass on their knowledge so you can contribute your findings.
