Narrowleaved lungwort monitoring OPOF

Monitoring Biodiversity

Lead Partner

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust

What is it about?

This monitoring will be coordinated by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and will be carried out by both professionals and trained volunteers. The surveyors will work with partners to monitor all sites which will be restored, enhanced or better managed during the delivery of the scheme.

Sites will have baseline surveys carried out before any works are undertaken and further surveys carried out during and after the scheme so that changes in species numbers can be monitored over time.

Species for monitoring will be chosen depending on the habitat type but will focus particularly on those which are on the Hampshire priority species list; so for instance, monitoring of the Better Boundaries sites might include surveys of species such as Barbastelle and Bechstein's bats, linnet and white letter hairstreak.

Similarly, surveys within the woodlands which have been brought back into management could include the monitoring of species such as bluebell, narrow leaved lungwort, pearl bordererd fritillary butterfly, stag beetle, light crimson and dark crimson underwing moths and woodcock.
