Little Budworth Common 18th May 2018

A huge thank you to the 13 recorders who joined our Little Budworth Invertebrate Recording Day. We’d also like to thank the Cheshire West and Chester Council Rangers and Natural England for permission to survey the site, and RECORD (the Local Environmental Records centre for Cheshire) for supporting us on the day. The site is a large impressive council-owned SSSI in West Cheshire with a good variety of habitats including bogs, heathland and mixed woodland. Sunny weather ensured many flying insects were on the wing for this early season session, allowing more species to be detected. So far about half the recorders have fed back their results and we don’t expect a final list from the day until the Winter when many Entomologists catch up with identifying specimens from a busy summer. However, a developing species list is given below, including the results of Clive Washington’s beetle recording session back in March. As well as providing us with a list, recorders are asked to formally submit their recorders via their usual channels (iRecord is recommended).
