If you are keen on Dorset wildlife then you will want to keep up to date with the latest news. In this part of the Nature of Dorset I try to bring you the latest species sightings from Dorset wildlife enthusiasts posted on Twitter.

  1. For the most uptodate information available then visit yesterday's records for a list of species and where they were seen. If you are on the look out for new species to see then this may be the ideal section for you. It maybe that, like me, you just like to keep up with what is going on in the natural world in Dorset
  2. As the seasons progress so things change week by week so here you can see how last week compared to the previous week and how it compared to the same week last year. It is interesting to see the changes in this way.
  3. The monthly section contains a series of 'blog' entries recording the highlights of the month backed up with species lists, distribution maps and various charts. The pick of the months photographs is also included.

I hope you find this information useful. If you are aware of a relevant news source that I have not included please let me know via the site contact form so that I can expand this section and make it really relevant. Thank you.

All my Nature Notes from Dorset to give you hours of interesting reading! 

There are various wildlife conservation and monitoring organisations in Dorset that publish a daily diary of what has been seen 'on their patch'. Whilst I try to include these records in the Nature of Dorset daily summary and in the historical database you may prefer to read their own contributions as they often contain more detailed information than I include
