Recording Excursions

Excursions are organised to obtain species data from sites across our region and to provide opportunities for group recording and skills sharing.

Priority is usually given to under-recorded areas or sites proposed as Local Biodiversity Sites / Local Nature Conservation Sites.

Most meetings are general outings - meaning that we will record whatever species we can competently identify! However, some outings are targeted at certain taxa or are joint events with local recording groups. Refer to the excursion listings below for further details.

Whether or not you have been on one of our excursions before you are most welcome to join us.

For information on previous excursions, please click on the links at the side of the page.
