A big thank you to everyone who's out there checking identifications and refining those records. It's wonderful to have so many wildlife sightings to work with.

Can we break 1000 today?

The rain has stopped, the wind has died down and I've even seen a hint of sunshine. Will today be the day that we can reach over 1000 wildlife observations? Finger's crossed and happy hunting everybody!

It's a grey squirrel!

So the first wildlife sighting into the Greater Manchester City Nature Challenge is the grey squirrel. They are so common in cities in the UK that it seems quite an appropriate record to open the weekend of biological recording!

The Challenge opens at midnight tonight. Who will be the first to record some urban wildlife in Greater Manchester? Do we have any night owls out there?
