The long and short of it


A few hardy souls turned out for the South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC) Bioblitz at Llantarnam Abbey today. The Abbey and its grounds has until recently been a bit of an unknown quantity hitherto only known for its lesser horseshoe bat colony. The aim of the assembled recorders was to put the site firmly on the biological recording map.

It was unfortunate that the weather was not conducive to recording invertebrates but in my capacity as County Recorder for Orthoptera I chalked up a fair list of long and short winged coneheadspeckled and dark bush cricket, common greenmeadow and field grasshoppers and common earwig
