Recorder Field Days

Our recorder field days are informal peer-to-peer learning experiences where naturalists can spend a day in the field together sharing their knowledge.

Whatever your level, from beginner to expert, we invite you to take part. Some of the days will have a theme but the content will generally be determined by the interests of the participants.

The aim of these days is to give people the opportunity to practise identification and surveying skills in a friendly environment to build confidence in biological recording.
