Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are re-launching fresh for 2017

The survey below is time limited so please complete at your earliest opportunity! Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are re-launching fresh for 2017 with an updated group constitution and a rejuvenated sense of purpose. We are keen to connect with existing group members and with volunteers who have shown an interest in the past. The purpose of this survey is to reach out and gain some initial feedback which the committee can then assess to help make the group re-launch as soon as possible.

SPRINGFIELD PARK, KNOTTY ASH, LIVERPPOOL
Springfield Park. 22 acres (8.9ha) is located in the suburb of Knotty Ash, and lies to the north of Prescot Road. Much of the park is now occupied by the newly rebuilt Alder Hey Children's Hospital, which opened in October 2015. The park has a direct track that links to the Loop Line (Trans Pennine Trail.)

Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists

 

Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are an active group of naturalists, volunteers, wildlife recorders and more that have a passion for wildlife in North Merseyside and recognise the value and importance of 'biological recording' to help conservation and to ensure that the important places for wildlife are recognised and evidenced.

The members have wide ranging interests in wildlife and we share that knowledge and experience within the group to help each other to pursue and expand our interests and make us better biological recorders.

Wetland Bird Survey

We have been kindly invited to join the WeBS team during one of their wetland bird surveys surveys along the Mersey to find out some more about the survey, our waders and how you can get involved.

If you're interested in coming along please let us know by email: info@merseysidebiobank.org.uk.

I will let you know early next week exact locations once I have an idea of numbers so I can let the WeBS team know :)

Sighted: Speckled Bush-cricket

Speckled Bush-cricket (Leptophyes punctatissima)

This little lady was brought into the office yesterday (26/09/2016) by Jed Lloyd a ranger of in neighbouring Halton. It's a Speckled Bush Cricket (Leptophyes punctatissima). Predominantly a species of south and middle England and Wales and one which, while noted to occur over a wider area, we have had very few records for Merseyside. In fact on checking the database we have zero records! However, we're pretty sure in the office that someone has mentioned this seeing this species on or near the Sefton Coast so we'll be looking into that.
