Buds, Berries and Leaves Survey

The Buds, Berries and Leaves survey is designed to help monitor changing plant phenology – the timing of life history events, such as leafing in the spring or fruiting in autumn.


We are looking for volunteers to walk fixed routes throughout the year to observe seasonal changes in the plant community. We will be recording information on the condition of four key species; bilberry, crowberry, rowan and heather.
