NATURAL HISTORY OF DRY DRAYTON - The Natural World of a Cambridgeshire Country Parish at the Millennium 2000


In 2000 a group called Dry Drayton 2000 published Gallows Piece to Bee Garden, a Millennium History of Dry Drayton. P115-182 comprised a natural history of the parish, written by Dr Val Perrin. Dr Perrin has kindly allowed us to reproduce this material, which you can access from this page. The species lists for the parish have been updated with additional sightings between 2000 and 2009. Please let us know if you find additional species in the Parish. It is to be hoped that others will make additions to this list in order to make the parish natural history records as complete as possible.
