Sunday 29th April to Sunday 20th May 2018

Alun Valley, Vale Of Glamorgan

We’ll probably select three Sunday mornings and six weekdays during this 3 week period to operate habitat transects.

The idea here is to set up a “transect” line which represents the habitat characteristics of sub-sites managed at some point in recent years specifically the violet-feeding fritillaries.

Usually these transects are recorded by measuring key vegetation data in six one metre square “quadrats”. Every four years, all sub-sites are reassessed using the same methodology, so that the changes in habitat and effect of management are measurable. 2018 is one such year.

Contact: Richard Smith for selected dates and meeting arrangements.
