Ever wanted to explore the shores or dive around Alderney?
Porcupine MNHS with the Alderney Wildlife Trust are proposing a unique field meeting to Alderney from 12th-19th September 2024.
Alderney is a beautiful island that is remote and right at the geographical range of many species, it is an important migration stop-over for birds and has many diverse ecosystems. Niche marine habitats exist due to the increased sea surface temperature (compared to UK!) and fast flowing tidal conditions (two extreme tidal stream bodies adjacent to the island). Marine species are therefore difficult to record in this current swept island…and so we are wanting to help get some interesting and useful records! The North West part of Alderney and the island of Burhou are a Ramsar site managed by The Alderney Wildlife Trust on behalf of the local government, the States of Alderney. Alderney is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, which comprises of Sark, Herm and Guernsey.
