Invertebrate and Botany Surveys

Photo 2 (invert blog)

ACD have been very busy with invertebrate and botany surveys this summer and the weather has been great for them! We have found lots of interesting critters.

The most species we found in a single site visit was 213 on a grassland site in Oxford. There were also nine nationally scarce/notable species discovered. These included five beetle species, a fly, a ground bug, and a tree ant. The mix of neutral grassland, bare ground, south facing tall ruderal banks and mature boundary habitats made this a fantastic mosaic to support a range of invertebrates.
