BBOWT WILD OXFORD PROJECT
Reports prepared by Judy on the Wild Oxford Project sites can be found under the heading 'Read the Wild Oxford project reports' near the bottom of this BBOWT website page.
Following time spent as a teacher of Biology, Judy was involved for 9 years in forensic environmental trace evidence surveys. The founder member of the New Marston Wildlife Group (now Friends of Milham Ford Nature Park), she is now an enthusiastic Oxford freelance ecologist and species recorder with a special interest in rare wetland plants (Sium latifolium is one of her ‘Flora Guardian’ species within the Oxfordshire Flora Group of the ANHSO), as well as flies and bees, although her interests also extend to other insects and fungi.
More about Judy
Judy's photo of a yellow flat-footed fly, Agathomyia wankowiczii,
was used for Buglife's 'Bug of the Month' feature for February 2019.
This fly is the only invertebrate in Britain known to cause a gall on fungus and has only been discovered here recently.

They were joined in a special planting ceremony by members of the Oxfordshire Flora Group and the Freshwater Habitats Trust. Flat Sedge Blysmus compressus, is a grass-like plant which thrives in wet marshy conditions.
