Walks with Mary Gillham -N0. 1 Dinas Powys

Dr Gillham spent a huge amount of time exploring South Wales and recording all of the species she found in different locations, sometimes for personal interest, sometimes whilst educating a group of extra mural students and sometimes to record what species and habitats were present in order to provide evidence for protecting an area. In this series of ‘Walks with Mary Gillham’ we will provide you with details of the surveys she undertook and the species she recorded. We would love to get an up-to-date species list so we can compare the two – will you find as much as Mary? Has the species composition changed drastically? Can you add new species to the list?
