Natalie at the National Trust has asked me to share this request for butterfly volunteers with you:
We are currently recruiting for survey volunteers at Hardcastle Crags!
Mainly we survey butterflies in the peak season and record our results onto the UK BMS database in partnership with Butterfly Conservation.
We want to expand our group so that we can collect more records, survey other critters as well as carrying out survey work which will influence our practical countryside work plans, habitat management and natural flood management work.
See the link below for the survey role profile and Hardcastle crags information packs.
The survey team meet up once a month for a catch up meet with a guest speaker accompanied with a survey on site. In the last meeting we had a student studying bumblebees on our hay meadows and for the next meeting we have a local mosses and liverworts chap talking about his crags discoveries and helping us to I.D.
Interested? Contact me directly on the email below with any other questions and information regarding a taster day.
