We can't wait to hear all about it

Birdwatching, Amy Lewis

Tell us what you've seen

let us know what you've been lucky enough to see! Whether it's on one of our nature reserves or in your back garden, your sightings help us build valuable county records that we can use to monitor species increase or declines and help us advise on planning applications. 

It's easy, just fill out the form below

It is really important that you provide a grid reference with your sighting as it helps us build vital species records. You can find the grid reference using Grid Reference Finder
Please note, we reserve the right to use any images you submit on our website. If you are unhappy for us to do so, please do not submit an image with your sighting.
