The mammal group survey of the distribution of hares in Bedfordshire has now entered its second year.
We received a reasonable number of records in 2017 & these have been plotted on the map shown:
What this shows compared to the 1996-8 survey is that there are still huge areas from which there are either no or very few records.
We hope therefore, that in the coming months you will be able to survey as many areas as possible & send in your results via the form on the mammal group website ( under research). Hopefully,by the end of 2018, we will have enough records to enable us to make a sensible comparison with the original survey and be able to judge whether or not the distribution has changed since then.
