The Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre (WSBRC) is a not-for-profit partnership initiative housed at the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust which provides a central reference point for environmental information on species, sites, habitats and geology in Wiltshire and Swindon.
We have recently received a record of a Roman Snail - Helix pomatia that was seen at Whitehill Coppice, near Ramsbury on 18th May.
Wiltshire Mammal Group Training
Mole hills, otter spraints, fox and deer footprints, a badger sett, nibbled grass and more. That was what the group attending a recent mammal training session held at Lower Moor Farm WWT reserve got to see first-hand. County Mammal Recorder, Mark Satinet, gave a very informative talk followed by a walk around this fantastic site enabling attendees to see all these fields signs for themselves. If you’d like to find out more about our mammals and how to record their whereabouts then sign up for the next event at Langford Lakes on 26th May.

Anthony Bainbridge, County Recorder for Diptera (flies), highlights some of the fascinating finds from a survey conducted across a number of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust nature reserves last year.
A country lane, woodland path or even a roadside verge would not be the same without the wide range of wildflowers inhabiting them. Therefore Plantlife is once again launching its annual Wildflowers Count survey, the only national wild plants survey in the UK.
Trees are such a part of our landscape; providing food and habitats for our wildlife and helping to combat climate change, that it is often only when they are lost that they are noticed. In May The Open Air Laboratories network (OPAL) is launching their 7th survey focused on the health of the trees in your local environment.
