Andy Grayson undertakes an entomological survey at Three Hagges Wood-Meadow annually. It is against this we will measure the success of our planting design in providing native host plants (now some 230 plant species on site) and habitat for the huge diversity of invertebrates that are critically important pollinators. We monitor not only the important and iconic pollinators such as moths, butterflies and bumble bees but also the lesser known and less glamorous that have fewer champions – many of which have declined drastically over the past fifty years.
Below is a list of invertebrates Andy recorded at Three Hagges Wood-Meadow since recording began in 2014. Additions made in 2017 are highlighted in Yellow. This list will be updated during 2017 once all specimens are identified.
