Freshwater Site Visits and Ad-hoc Sightings
Records of species and habitat ad hoc sightings collected in the freshwater environment. This includes, but it not limited to aquatic plants, amphibians and certain easily identified invertebrates. Data collection will be on-going during the monitoring and other survey work.
Data is collected in order to assist with targeted monitoring and site management of freshwater environments across Wales.
There is good confidence in this data as Species identification was made in the field with any rare or uncertain species verified in the lab or sent to a recognised expert for verification.
This dataset consists of ad hoc sightings data collected during structured site visits. Recording is mainly focused on recording plant species using the standard grapnel sampling methodology from a boat. Additional species are collected as incidental or ad-hoc records during the survey.
