At the end of 2022 our iNaturalist project that records the animals found in our catchment stood at 680 species. Total observations stand at 1844, with over 3000 identifications supporting the identifications.

The top 10 most observed species are:

  • Pyramidal Orchid – 22 observations

Now that the project has been running for nearly 3 years, we can start to see how our observations and coverage have grown.
