Wider Countryside Butterfly Survey 2011

Filed under: Butterflies — Andrew Masterman @ 7:20 pm

“We are delighted to inform you that we have decided to continue the Wider Countryside Butterfly Survey (WCBS) again in 2011.  Once again this will be a collaborative project with BTO and CEH.   We would like to thank everyone who took part last year and especially the WCBS Champions who helped promote the survey within the Branches.  

The survey had another successful year in 2010 with nearly 700 squares sampled. We hope you will continue to survey the same squares in the same way as last year. Our priority is to re-survey these squares for at least the next 2 years so that we can determine trends in the wider countryside and see whether they differ from transect trends. We also welcome new participants either to help re-survey old squares, or to survey new ones for the first time.  New surveyors will be allocated randomly selected 1-km squares in their Branch area.  The squares need to be surveyed in July and August by two visits at least ten days apart.

Anyone interested in taking part in the WCBS in Glasgow and South West Scotland in the coming season should contact Jo Davis (the Branch Champion) for further information.”

You can read more about WCBS on the UK BMS website.
