How about a few mammal photographs, preferably of the records being listed via Adnoto. Either post pictures on the Beds Flora & Fauna Blog as detailed below, or on The Mammal Group site.

When entering a record on Adnoto, please list the nearest town in the 'location box' and not "in garden" etc.

All records are of live animals unless stated. 18 Species for the week and now 29 species for 2016.

Can all records please be submitted via the BNHS Adnoto system, as this adds them to the holding Database and means all the necessary information is submitted.

Thank you and good watching, David Anderson (Beds Mammal Recorder)
