Tell us what you've seen

Have you had an amazing wildlife encounter? Let us know! Whether it's on one of our nature reserves or in your own back garden, your sightings help us build valuable county records that we can use to monitor species increase or declines and help us advise on planning applications.

There is never any harm in reporting what you have seen. Even a sighting that you think is commonplace can help us to better understand our natural world and enable us to protect species in the areas where they most need our help. 

It's easy, just fill out the form below
