How to submit your Glow Worm records/sightings

The quickest and easiest way to contribute your records to the Nottinghamshire Glow Worm Survey, is by completing our simple online survey form on the right. The form can also be used to send in any old Glow Worm records you may have. Old records are important in helping us to determine a more accurate picture of Glow Worm distribution and how it may have changed over time.

It is just as useful if we know where Glow Worms are not found, so please remember that negative results from a site, are equally as important as positive results to the survey and will help in our mapping of the Glow Worm's distribution at the end of the survey.

Alternatively, your survey results can be sent to us directly via the post, giving details of observer, date, location, an accurate six figure grid reference and a short description of habitat type, e.g. woodland ride, grass bank, disused railway line etc. Please send your results to the following address.

The NGWS 13 Day Street, Market Warsop, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG20 0NG
