Siccaridge 600 Bioblitz was a roaring success;
the Cotswold NNR Bioblitz attracted lots of attention and also benefited from glorious sunny weather!
Over 750 species were identified as a result of the Siccaridge 600 Bioblitz, smashing the target. More details about the results >>
The Cotswolds NNR Bioblitz at Cranham Common and Buckholt Wood found over 700 species at the event itself, with many more records yet to be identified. Will they reach 1000-species?

Frequently Asked Questions about Bioblitzes
Do I have to stay for the whole event/overnight?
No! Just turn up - but bear in mind some activities are very popular and may need to be booked in advance.
Do I have to be good at wildlife ID? What if I get it wrong?!
Don’t worry: Bioblitzes have experts present to help with plant and animal identification. Come and learn more!
What’s the point of all this? Do the records get used?
Yes! Bioblitzes are a valuable source of information, especially for those sites which are so large and diverse that it can take a mass effort just to keep track of everything. Your records will add to GCER’s database and help form the basis of future conservation efforts.
Do I need to bring anything?
You will need suitably sturdy footwear, and waterproofs are always a good idea. By all means bring your own ID guides, binoculars etc., but there will be a range of resources on hand.
