wildlife reports

The wildlife reports provide a rundown of remarkable sightings, new discoveries, important conservation projects and the latest scientific research from across the full spectrum of British wildlife. News items are curated by a team of expert contributors, and distilled into individual summaries on everything from fungi through to cetaceans. The wildlife reports have been a mainstay of the magazine ever since it first went to press, in 1989, and as a result they offer an unrivalled catalogue of change in the British fauna and flora. Over the years, these pages have diligently tracked the fortunes of our wildlife, from gradual shifts in distribution and phenology driven by a warming climate, to the arrival and spread of troublesome invaders such as the Harlequin Ladybird. The wildlife reports continue to offer the best way of staying up to date with news on all our plants, fungi and animals.
