After the successful publication of Worcestershire’s Mammals by Worcestershire Recorders in 2012 displaying records from 1995 to 2007, we are calling for records as part of a three year push to collate mammal data for the following recording period of 2007 to 2019.
Worcestershire Recorders, Worcestershire Mammal Group and WBRC will work together to encourage increased recording of all wild mammal species found in Worcestershire, all species are important to us – no matter how common they are (or are perceived to be). There were 433 monads (c.20% of the county) with no mammal records at all in the atlas so we would really like to get this blank space populated with a more accurate picture of species distributions.
Records can be submitted to WBRC directly in a method that suits you, by email, spreadsheet or via iRecord, we have special recording forms for download on our website that can be printed out and kept handy for noting your sightings. Worcestershire Mammal Group have a record submission webpage that comes straight to WBRC. We will be keeping our Facebook page updated with latest news and what to look out for across the mammal year so keep your eyes peeled and please send in your records.
If you have any queries or would like help identifying mammal tracks and signs you find then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us direct. We look forward to publishing updated maps to show the progress.
