Today (22nd May) is International Biodiversity Day. Here in Ireland the National Biodiversity Centre are asking us to spend some time over the weekend recording the wildlife in your garden, locality or nearest wildlife site, and tell them what species you find. I think this is a great idea and will certainly be taking part. Their aim is to record over 1000 records each day of the weekend (http://www.biodiversityireland.ie/).
So, not matter where you live on this wonderful earth of ours, why not take up the challenge too. How many species can you record in your garden this weekend? I will report back later in the week and look forward to hearing your reports too!
