Go Wild on Wight

The results are in! 

405 species were observed and named – with possibly another name to come.  It was a great team effort; many thanks to all who submitted records, stayed up late and/or got up early, and persisted with identifying or confirming unusual species.

We hope to publish the final species list next week; in the meantime check out this link to see a full report and photographs of the day : https://iwnhas.org/bioblitz-2018-the-results-are-in/
