OUR WILDLIFE SURVEY
In 2021 we conducted our first survey of the wildlife in All Saints’ churchyard and with your help we were able to identify 97 varieties of plant/flowers, 39 trees/shrubs, 11 grasses, 10 lichens/moss, 15 insects, 1 mammals and (separately) 40 moths.
We have made some changes to the churchyard to try and encourage greater biodiversity.
Our friends at St Peter’s in Great Cheverell will also be doing the survey in their churchyard this year.
You might like to download the Seek by inaturalist app to help you with your identification.
Are you interested in local wildlife?
Would you like to help us identify the wildlife in our churchyard?
Your findings will be collated with others gathered during the week and then added to the National Biodiversity Network, a national database of wildlife across the UK.
At All Saints’ Church we are trying to build up a picture of the range of wildlife that is already present in the churchyard to help us think about and plan how we can make the churchyard more biodiverse with a view to protecting, creating and enhancing nature in our community area.
How many different species can you spot? You could look for your favourite type of wildlife: flowers, grasses, insects, birds, trees, fungi, lichens, reptiles or traces of animals.
