Spring 2021

Friday 26th & Saturday 27th March 10am- 12.30pm

The Spring' Conference will still be held online due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19 through GoogleMeets.  You will need to have a google account and be signed in to join in. If you don’t have a google account, this is free and can be done so here. Our recorders’ conferences offer a chance for the biological recording community to come together and share updates and information on what they are doing. Anyone who is interested in wildlife recording and conservation is welcome to attend.


This will be a FREE online event but booking is essential. Registrations are now open here.


We are currently making preparations and pulling the programme together so keep an eye for future updates!
