HAVE you spotted roadkill while on your daily commute or family road trip?

Now you can record animals - dead or alive - that you see via an app as part of a survey run by wildlife charity, People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES).

The charity is calling on volunteers in Oxfordshire to record sightings of mammals such as hedgehogs and badgers.

People can submit their findings via the free Mammals on Road app where the data collected will help conservationists see changing population trends and most importantly, identify where conservation action is needed the most and for which species.

David Wembridge, mammal surveys coordinator, said: "Mammals on Roads began over 18 years ago, and though no-one likes seeing roadkill, recording such sightings every year tells us how wild mammals are faring in the surrounding landscape.

"Thanks to the many volunteers who’ve submitted records over the last two decades we found out that hedgehog numbers are plummeting. Now, we’re doing everything we can to help this species, but we wouldn’t have known they were in trouble without volunteers helping us.”

The app has clear audio descriptions of each mammal, colourful illustrations and easy-to-use navigation.

Animals more likely to be spotted from your car include hedgehogs, badgers, rabbits, foxes and deer but keep your eyes peeled for some of the lesser seen wildlife too, such as stoats and otters.
