Our Phyllis Currie reserve near Great Leighs are looking for extra help with wildlife surveys for the site. The reserve consists of lakes streams and grasslands, and has previously recorded 13 different species of dragonfly and damselfly and over 23 different butterfly species. The flash of a kingfisher is often spotted along the river banks too.
Need to know
If you can help identify and record different wildflowers, grasses, moths and insects then we would love to hear from you. The records are invaluable to the Trust in supporting its work to conserve and protect the Essex countryside for wildlife.
