Insect monitoring

On Friday the 27th of September, Janice Edwards laid out our insect traps. This monitoring is done every year as part of the WCMG monitoring programme. It is usually carried out about the same time every year. Several sites are assessed every year and the information collected helps us better understand how the insect population responds to our large scale restoration programme. Insects are extremely important as they are the food source for a number of other species that we are hoping to bring back.

A big thank you to Janice for her commitment to this very meticulous work.
