Recording your observations

It's also important to keep a record of what you see and when.  This graph shows obervations of coot near FSC Malham Tarn between 2009 and 2013 and captures their dramatic disappearance in 2011.

Coot Graph By monitoring the wildlife we can better find out what is going on - and the sooner you start the more you will find out.  Why not start a record of species near you?  We would love to hear about want you find to share in future issues of the email newsletter.  The National Biodiversity Network website also has information about sharing your sightings.
