Last year a number of intrepid volunteers took part in a Wales-wide survey of our chats – Stonechat, Whinchat and Wheatear.
The season however, was the victim of atrocious weather making visits to squares impossible for many cases. As a result, we did not quite attain the coverage needed to make meaningful scientific analysis possible.
In order to achieve our necessary target of between 300-400 surveyed squares across Wales, we will be running the survey again this spring, with some new squares to visit and some of last year’s squares which were defeated by the weather.
In our region, we have been allocated a number of new survey squares in the Valleys and uplands, which is hopefully more typical of the habitat these species frequent.
