We now have webcams installed as part of our biodiversity monitoring efforts.
Our brilliant volunteers have been going through the footage, and we’re really pleased with the images the cameras have captured so far. We’ve also got people logging their own sightings on iNaturalist – including stalwart volunteer Bob Glen, a couple of whose photos appear here along with the webcam captures…

Anyone can get involved with @iNaturalist.org – you can download the app or create an account on the website, find Lauriston Farm under ‘Projects’ and log your sightings from the farm. We’d love to see your spots in there, and the more data we have, the better.
