Provenance information The quality is high. Data were most collected by recognised experts and all records have been validated. Data Capture Method: Principally field observations of species encountered Data Capture Purpose: Part of the BioBlitz event involves different sites competing against one another to see which site could record the most species over a 24 hour period. BioBlitz is held annually and is intended to raise awareness of biodiversity recording and conservation. Original Format: Spreadsheet & Recorder 6
