Pierrepont Farm Monitoring

Except where otherwise stated, all the reports have been prepared by Bill Young, the leader of the monitoring group covering both Green Farm and Pierrepont Farm.

Because of having to cover two farms, there is not a report on each farm for each month of the year (and the monitoring group does not meet in December and January anyway).

Some of the reports below make reference to Simpson’s Index of Diversity and to Simpson’s Reciprocal Index of Diversity. A straightforward and concise explanation of these can be found here, on a page published by the Offwell Woodland & Wildlife Trust, of Honiton, Devon.
