of people across Britain are now recording nature’s calendar as part of
the UK Phenology Network to see what effect climate change is having on
our wildlife. The majority of plants and animals used in the national
initiative, however, are not found in Shetland. Therefore the Shetland
Biological Records Centre, with assistance from Scottish Natural Heritage,
has produced a leaflet that IS relevant to people in Shetland so that we
too, can participate in this important project.
don't have to be an expert to take part, you can record as much or as little
information as you are able. All you need to do is fill in the first and
last date for the wildlife events detailed on the form. Even forms with just
one or two entries will contribute to the project. Your observations can be
made anywhere in Shetland.
