…and it’s a stonker. The boffins at the Bristol Regional Environmental Records Centre have just revealed that in the last 30 hours we’ve identified a massive 779 individual species.
- 121 are notable, meaning that they have particular ecological significance;
- 25 have never been recorded in North Somerset; and
- 15 have not been seen before in the whole of Avon.
And on top of that, it’s the highest ever BioBlitz tally. An outstanding conclusion to a fantastic, yet exhausting, biodiversity marathon. Hurray!
