Report sightings

It is vital that we have as much data as possible on local species of all types. Please click this link to iRecord to report what you've seen. There is no need to have an iRecord account, but you can create one if you want. 


iRecord is a national database of wildlife records. The Wild Maidenhead team are able to download local records from iRecord for analysis. iRecord data for Berkshire and Oxfordshire are some of the records extracted by the Thames Valley Environmental Records Centre (TVERC). In its turn TVERC data is used by RBWM for planning and other environmental issues. So information provided by you can make a real difference.
