1992 Glow Worm Report !!!!!

1992 began with an item on Radio 4’s Natural History Programme in which I reported on the results of the 1991 survey, and suggested that anyone interested in looking for glow worms in 1992 should write in. The aim would be to survey old sites, to see to what extent glow worms still remain there. The late Anthony Wootton ran a survey in the 1970s through Country-Side magazine (Journal of the British Naturalists’ Association). This provided a large number of sites throughout the UK where glow worms had been seen up to the early 1970s. I believe that subsequent attempts to locate the original reports have failed, though maybe they are sitting somewhere waiting to be analysed. (Would anyone be interested in following this one up?) To the Wootton list, I added sites of which I had been told in recent surveys.
