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 http://oxfordshiremistletoe.blogspot.co.uk
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.
