Tayside Garden BioBlitz (Online)

June 23


Starting today, let’s go outside and record the wildlife in our gardens! No particular knowledge is expected as sightings are verified by experts.

There will be insects (butterflies, bumblebees, hoverflies, ladybirds etc), birds and perhaps the occasional mammal (hedgehog, squirrel, mouse) – and don’t forget the wildflowers in your garden. It’s all important – and great fun to discover!

By joining nearly 49,000 observers in the UK we can record what we find via the iNaturalist App. It is very easy to join – https://uk.inaturalist.org/sign up – and once you have, you can record wildlife anywhere in the world.

Then click on https://uk.inaturalist.org/projects/every-action-counts-tayside-s-local-patch-project and choose which area of Tayside you are in (right hand column).

So far, just within the UK, iNaturalist ‘citizen scientists’ have created almost 5 million records, helping scientists understand more about our wildlife. Explore more:

The online Tayside Garden BioBlitz starts today (and you can take part just today if you wish). However, why not regularly explore your garden over the coming months and add more species as you find them as the seasons change?
