Reptile survey

This Sunday 7th May from 1.00pm for an hour or so, The Bury Water Meadows Group is carrying out a reptile survey with the help of a local ecologist, Nick Sibbett. We will learn how to set up the survey, how to record the wildlife we find and what to do with the data. The survey needs to last about 7 weeks so that creatures get used to finding the mats to hide under. We will need to come back to the mats during the summer but I will set up a rota so that no more than one return per person will be expected and it will be at your convenience!

If you want to take part please let me know in the first instance that you want to come. All you have to do is bring gardening gloves and suitable clothing as I think it will still take place if it rains. Amphibians and reptiles like the rain!
