Hello all nature lovers!  

I expect you have all seen the lovely yellow Brimstone butterflies around recently a real harbinger of Spring. It is important that numbers and location of these, and all other wildlife, are recorded to determine the state and distribution of each species in the county.

The Warwickshire Biological Records Centre (WBRC) would like all sightings of animals, butterflies, moths, plants etc for their records so, if you spot anything please consider taking the time to report it no matter how mundane it may seem.

WBRC suggest that all records are sent to them from where they will be distributed to the relevant county recorders and specialist groups. This may be easier for you than separating them for the different organisations.

They have sent me an excel template to store the records so, if you are interested I can forward this and their e-mail address to you (please mail me at smithje @ btinternet.com). Your spreadsheet can be sent in quarterly to save you from sending emails for every sighting.

For further information, contact Grenville or other members of the OWLS team.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
