Recording the seasonal events that show the impact of climate change on wildlife….

… is the purpose of the Woodland Trust’s new Nature’s Calendar website. We’ve been exploring it since it’s suprising finding that British blackberries seem to be declining. The purpose of the website is to get volunteers recording seasonal changes that will show the affect climate change is having on British wildlife.

As they say

Nature’s Calendar is the home For thousands of volunteers who record the signs of the seasons where they live. It could mean noting the first ladybird or swallow seen in your garden in spring, or the first blackberry in your local wood in autumn.

If you have the time and the inclination this sounds like a very interesting crowd sourcing project to get involved in.
