Keep your Eyes Peeled

The country roads around Dumfries are a delight to cycle on – but as anyone who rides on them regularly knows, roadkill is a frequent sight: always a bit depressing to see some beautiful wild creature (or even a pheasant…) mangled by a passing car.

But now you can at least put that sad sighting to some use. The delightfully named ‘Project Splatter’ is a third-year Zoology project from Cardiff University, mapping ‘roadkill hotspots’ around the UK. If you see anything you can report it to them either via their facebook page or Twitter – using the hashtag #splatterproject

Keep your eyes peeled for any roadkill ...
