General comments:
Widespread and common resident, but potentially declining.

Generally regarded as an ubiquitous species, affecting the entire range of terrestrial habitats available in our area. However, the graph below show a slight but regular decline in records, numbers of individuals and reported sites since approximately 2012. This may be a temporary event, or the start of something more serious?

Recorded in 35 (85%) of 41 10k Squares.
First Recorded in 1888.
Last Recorded in 2023.
