Recording Excursions


TWIC organises a programme of excursions each year, some in conjunction with local recording groups. These excursions are planned primarily to obtain biodiversity data from sites across our region. Priority is usually given to sites proposed as Local Biodiversity Sites (pLBS), as this means that any data generated from the excursions can be used in the site assessment. Recorders of all groups of organisms are welcome. Whether or not you have been on one of our excursions before or are a newcomer you are most welcome to join us.

Please contact the excursion leader beforehand (leaving your contact telephone number) so that they know to expect you. It is rare that we have to cancel an excursion, but should this occur we will endeavor to contact you by phone. Also, please check the website the evening before the outing if possible as any last minute changes will be published here.

Join the mailing list: If you would like to receive notifications of forthcoming TWIC recording excursions by email, please contact natalie@wildlifeinformation.co.uk and ask to be added to the excursions mailing list. Note that you can unsubscribe from this list at any time by emailing us. Details on how we hold and use your personal information can be found in our privacy policy which can be downloaded from the TWIC documents page.

Recorders should send any outstanding records to natalie@wildlifeinformation.co.uk in Excel by the end of the year, so that the records can be shared with landowners and published on the NBN Atlas.
