Wildlife Sightings

Please submit your sightings via email ( or via the contact box. Please do send photos if you are happy for them to be shared.

If a sighting interests you or has given you joy that you could share with others then please do submit - there is no threshold of interest.  We are also very happy to help out with identifying birds and beasts or trying to get your photos in front of someone who can.

If you do not wish to identify where something has been seen it can be shared without a location - please let us know when you send in the information.
