Species in the wood

 

 

Autumn.

 

The list below shows flora and fauna identified in 2015 and preceding years. Photographs of many species can be found by using the search box or categories (See the Searching This Site page).

The key:

2015* refers to a species recorded for the first time in 2015.
2015+ refers to species recorded each year since we started recording in 2013. If a species was not recorded every year, the years in which it has been seen are stated.
2012+ refers to species identified between 2009-2012, when we took photographs but did not consistently record.
‘pi’ means species that have been provisionally identified, ie there is a better than average chance that we, or a contributor, knows what is pictured.
