Appeal for Mistletoe records

For the last couple of years I have been undertaking a mistletoe survey of southern Oxfordshire and I have got to a point where I am finding it difficult to record mistletoe in new locations. Therefore I am seeking to add more records to the map.

To this end I have produced a blog which provides a form in which you can enter mistletoe sightings

The blog also provides more information about the survey, and where mistletoe has thus far been recorded.

Headline results of the survey are:
-          Approximately 913 trees have been noted to support mistletoe in Oxfordshire;
-          A total of 3316 ‘clumps’ have been noted;
-          The host tree species has been noted for 766 trees, with the host species including Lime, Poplar, Apple, Hawthorn, False-acacia and Rowan.

Many thanks,
