Dormouse Project

Members of the Society, together with members of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT), the Mammal Society and the Peoples Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) have been involved in a project to introduce Dormice to Little Linford Wood.

Hazeley Wood Project

Hazeley Wood is a 10.6ha area of plantation woodland established in 1991 on a former wheat field. The Society has been involved in studying the wood as it has developed and has produced a number of Reports detailing ecological changes that have occurred over time.

Details of Hazeley Wood are given on the Wildlife Sites page.

Identification Guides

These pages provide details of reference material to help you to identify different subjects.

We have concentrated on groups of species that are easier to identify and for which there are readily-available books or other resources.

We welcome suggested additions to this list and intend that it will build up in its coverage and hence usefulness over time.

Natural History Websites

This is a list of links to websites that you might find useful. They range from other local wildlife groups to species specific groups and recording sites. Please let us know if there are any other links you feel would be useful to include here.


This section gives details of articles and publications produced by the society or by members of the society.


This page explains how you can turn your observations of wildlife into biological recordings. These are collated and stored by the local records centre (Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Environmental Records Centre, BMERC).  Records are vital in assessing the state of local wildlife and in providing up-to-date data for a variety of other purposes, such as assessing planning applications. Every record contributes to our knowledge of the wildlife of Milton Keynes. Even a single record is worthwhile.


This project set out to encourage any member, who was interested in taking part, to adopt a tetrad, usually near their home or favourite stomping ground. A tetrad is a 2km x 2km square as seen on Ordnance Survey maps using the National Grid. Those participating then collect records of all flora and fauna spotted within this area and submit the records annually to the Society’s collators of tetrad records. These records are then submitted to the Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Environmental Record Office.
