We are fortunate to have a number of organised groups focusing on wildlife in general and hedgehogs within the Bristol area.
The first of these groups was the BS3 wildlife Group organised by My Wild Bedminster and the follow on groups have copied the Postcode based format as it’s easy to remember and obvious to those without detailed knowledge of Bristol’s local areas.
We encourage using iNaturalist as a tool for identifying and recording wildlife. Our aim is to create an iNaturalist Project for each Group so folk can see what has been recorded within the group area.
To add records to a local group, just record as normal and the records will automatically appear in the group’s project unless you’ve set them to hidden ( for example if you’re recording a protected species like a great crested newt)
