North Merseyside Local Wildlife Site selection guidelines outline the rules by which Local Wildlife Sites in North Merseyside are selected. These rules include thresholds, some of which are tailored specifically to a taxonomic group.
Species that meet those thresholds are considered local conservation priorities ensuring that we maintain an evidence led approach to delivering local conservation action and decision taking.
Delivering ongoing evidence review and data collection the Lancashire & Cheshire Fauna Society have produced a new Atlas of Dragonflies “Dragonflies of Lancashire & North Merseyside” which can be purchased via the British Dragonfly Society.
The data and review of Odonata have led to the revision of the Local Wildlife Site selection guidelines on Odonata. The revised guidelines can be downloaded here.
