Topic: Case Studies wanted for Garden Wildlife Recording Conference

Hi All,

I'll be giving a talk on the role of Local Record Centres in Wildlife Recording at an upcoming Wildlife Gardening Forum Conference in a couple of weeks. If possible, I would like to present a few case studies from around the UK on Garden Recording Projects that LRCs have organised or been involved with. If anyone has any suggestions it would be great to hear them. I have a few examples from Surrey but as it's a national conference it would be good to highlight other projects as well. All suggestions welcome!

Best wishes,

Catherine

We worked with the Lincolnshire Bird Club to create an online data entry page for their Garden Bird Survey which has been running for over 30 years. The site (http://record.glnp.org.uk) is down at the moment (BRC maintenance) but there's an info page up at http://www.glnp.org.uk/getting-involved … survey.php

Re: Case Studies wanted for Garden Wildlife Recording Conference

This is great stuff; thank you very much for those suggestions Teresa and Charlie. I'm really happy that the Wildlife Gardening Forum want to focus solely on recording for this conference as they are really knowledgeable about the wildlife in their gardens and I don't think they realise just how potentially useful all that knowledge is.
