The park is home to wealth of wildlife ranging from birds to an excellent collection of trees. Cannon Hill friends have been working closely with Park Rangers, local residents and OPAL West Midlands to create a range of events and activities to help people find, observe and document the plants and animals they see in the park.

So far we have documented: 60 species of birds ; 12 species of mammal (including 3 bats and a Muntjac Deer!); 2 amphibians; and lots of insects: 16 butterfly species; 46 species of moth; 6 galls; 2 Bugs; 14 Bees; 3 Wasps; 13 Beetles; 2 Dragonflies; 1 Damselfly; 20 Hoverflies; 69 flowering plants; 35 tree and shrubs; 8 fungi. And this is only scratching at the surface!

Interested in wildlife? Check out our wildlife tweets ( below) for information on the wildlife happenings this month in the park! Have a look at the opportunities for species identification and mapping using iSpot from the Open University. Take part in the surveys carried out the OPAL West Midlands regional team or the Soil, Air, Water, Biodiversity and Climate Surveys made available by National OPAL centres.

Or get involved by joining us for an
event. Spotted something you cannot recognize? Check it out in park galleries to see if it's there. You can now also listen the park sounds in our sound gallery. We will update this frequently as we get new recordings.

Need help with bird identification? Have a look at the RSPB new '
Bird Identifier' tool. Or email the photograph to us. We'll have a look for you. And lastly feel free to tweet through your wildlife records to @cannonhillwild.

We are introducing a series of Identification guides. The first two focus on the largest of our park hoverflies are
