Rare Earthworm found at new Wildlife Site
24 February 2022
A recent survey at newly purchased Herefordshire Wildlife Trust site Oak Tree Farm has uncovered a little of the earthworm diversity found there. As well as 12 other records most of which have never been found in the county before, the team at FSC Biolinks identified Allolobophora nocturna which as the name suggest generally comes up to the surface at night and generally lives in vertical burrows deep in the soil. It is hoped that more people will search for earthworms and join the Earthworm society.
