Data Collection Day 10 – Campus Woodland

It was the turn of my final data collection session on campus woodland today, and it was the final of my dusk samples. In total, only 9 species were witnessed, but a further 7 were identified using the voice recorder. This gave a total of 16 species, but no new species that were not already witnessed.

About Thomas Whitlock

I'm a third student at the University of Reading, currently studied for a degree in Zoology. I have a wide interest in biodiversity, most notably British wildlife. I have an especial interest in British mammals and birds. I hope to become a wildlife cameraman or photographer after I graduate, and I feel that blogging will be a key component of any future job in Zoology. This is my first blog, so please be kind!
