Fox ? Restless Fiona

Countywide survey for mammals, amphibians and reptiles 2015-2022

We are inviting everyone with an interest to take part in this countywide survey to collect data to produce a new county atlas. Restrictions on fieldwork resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic have led to the survey being extended into 2022

The last organised county survey was started in 1970 and resulted in the publication of Michael Clark's book, Mammals, Amphibians and Reptiles of Hertfordshire, in 2001.
