The Jersey Biodiversity Centre has produced a report exploring pollinator records submitted in 2019.
The report, authored by Jersey Biodiversity Centre student volunteer Daniel Ferreira, compiles together the number of biological records entered for pollinators such as bees, butterflies and moths, but it also includes other insects that have data entries in Jersey. The Jersey Biodiversity Centre collates records entered from iRecord, their website and the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme. The species reported on were identified by the number of recordings in Jersey. Species with more recordings have in-depth information for example maps showing where these species have been recorded in Jersey.
The report shows the effort put in by the whole community of Jersey to identify and record pollinating species, it does however show a huge difference of butterflies recorded compared to other insects such as bees, the report will hopefully aid in raising the awareness for recording other pollinators.
