This is what I gleaned about the nature of Dorset yesterday from your tweets; you can find more information by visiting the news desk (see the link below). The Nature of Dorset database has records going back to the 1st January 2017 which provides a history of what has been seen, where, when and by whom - you can interrogate the database to build lists, display charts and create distribution maps to your own requirments in the RECORDS section.
