Lundy report May 22 2008

U3A Findings

What has been observed by U3A members?

There is a significant benefit from having the records database built into the website. Members will be able to see online what we are finding, as soon as the data is entered.

Recording of wildlife species by this group is still being explored. Members have only been asked to return Wildlife Diaries since late 2007, although the leader has made contributions over a longer period.

Wildlife Diary

Introduction. Parish-Wildlife Members are encouraged to keep a Wildlife Diary, noting numbers of species that they see on their own local survey area ( eg garden, smallholding etc] in set 3 month periods.

They are provided with a checklist of ca 200 common and relatively easily identified species from Birds to Mammals, Butterflies etc.

The diary forms can be downloaded from this page, once a member has registered. The form needs to be handed to the data analyst each April, July, Oct and Jan.

The U3A (University of the Third Age) exisits to improve the minds and bodies of its members. Members normally have to be 55 years of age and have access to a number of interest groups of which the Wildlife Group is one. LAPWG is exploring ways in which we can provide support to this group and coordinate recording of information to add to our wildlife data.

The group normally meets on the first Wednesday of each month.
