It will soon be time to look out for and report beeflies in Northants. They usually emerge in mid-late March but it is possible that some could be found in late February in mild, sheltered spots. Until 2018, we only had one species in Northants. This was the widespread Dark-edged Beefly, Bombylius major.

'Look out for...Mammals' Mammal Web Survey

Camera traps have given us a new view of the shyer species living alongside us. Help Northants as a ‘trapper’ by uploading your footage and as a ‘spotter’ by reviewing footage and identifying the species for biological records. Work together in our ‘Look out for…mammals’ with Mammal Web. Protection starts with what we know.
