the network of amphibian and reptile groups in the uk have been recording and reporting the presence and relative abundance of the reptiles and amphibians they see on their surveys. The technology has moved forwards the use of mobile devices and online reporting. The desk top version of the sighting card is demonstrated in the following YouTube video.

Great crested newt surveys this year.

This year I have been registered under Natural England’s class license which came in at the end of last year. This year’s survey work has produced some great results around the M25 and the A12 in Essex and at the Nevendon washland reserve. 

The reporting arrangements for the class 2 license is due for the end of October and there is a requirement to report survey results to local record centre’s. There are no excuses for people undertaking newt surveys you will be in breach of your survey license and effectively the survey work would be considered illegal if the results are not reported to local record centre’s. 

I will be sending all the data I have collected to the online record pool based on the ARG UK website at http://arguk.org/recording. I will be reporting all my data to the record pool knowing that the information will be heading to local groups, lrcs and county recorders. 

The question is will there be a rush of records this October?
