Heteroptera and Diptera surveys on the Cholmondeley Estate


This report provides the results of a series of heteroptera and diptera surveys carried out in a variety of habitats in the Cholmondeley Estate in southern Cheshire. Six visits were made between April 2018 and August 2019, resulting in 909 individual records of the presence of a species in a 100m grid square on a specific date. This was part of a wider programme of surveys across a wide range of sites and habitats in Lancashire and Cheshire. A full list is given of the 343 species recorded and their distribution across four habitat types: Bickley Hall Farm, damp pastures, wet woodland and dry habitats. Species recorded at this site and nowhere else during these surveys are highlighted and discussed. The species list is interpreted in terms of habitat assemblages using the PANTHEON software available on the website of the Biological Records Centre.
