South Wonston BioBlitz 2023 - Quick Look Report

That's a wrap! Thank you to everyone who participated, whether as observer or identifier.

As of 1430 on 02 October 2023, a total of 520 observations of 148 species were submitted by 6 observers during the BioBlitz. Of these, 250 (48.1%) have so far reached Research Grade and can be considered to be accurate identifications to species level. This figure is likely to increase over the coming weeks as further identifications are added (currently made by 64 identifiers from around the world). Of the Research Grade observations, at least 3 are of species that have previously not been reported for the village:

  • Common striped woodlouse (Philoscia muscorum).
  • Noon fly (Mesembrina meridiana).
  • Ivy Cellophane bee (Colletes hederae).

It is possible that further 'new' species to the village will be identified as identifications are refined.

This is necessarily a quick look at the results of the BioBlitz. A more rigorous analysis will be conducted in a month or so when further identifications of the observations have been made.

Day 2 Update - 25 September 2023

Towards the end of Day 2, over 75 observations had been made of 52 species! That's a significant increase over the 15 observations made on Day 1 and no doubt reflects the good weather today.

Please try and keep up with the observations to see if we can make over 100 observations by Day 3. If it's wild and it moves, photograph it and upload the observation! If it doesn't move, don't paint it, photograph it for iNat!

According to the YR forecast for South Wonston (https://www.yr.no/en/forecast/daily-table/2-11592744/United%20Kingdom/England/Hampshire/South%20Wonston), the rain tomorrow morning should clear by around 1100, so there should be the opportunity to collect observations whilst not getting wet.

Enjoy the BioBlitz!
