The latest edition of the NFBR newsletter is now available.
It includes updates on the work being carried out by Records Centres and Recording Schemes across the country and showcases important work being done by students and the invaluable contribution recorders make to our understanding of wildlife distributions. There are a couple of new regular features: a taxonomy round up of changes to the NBN UK Species Inventory and spotlight interviews with a Local Environmental Records Centre and a national recording scheme. It can be read online together with earlier editions.
The NFBR has also announced that its next conference will be in Shrewsbury/Preston Montford from 10-12th May 2018
It will be held in conjunction with Field Studies Council and Manchester Metropolitan university on the topic of Skill Development in Biological Recording. Conference objectives include considering which skills recorders need, reviewing results of gap analyses and sharing best practice in transferring skills. If you have something to say about developing skills and would like to contribute to the conference programme, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org. Please check the NFBR website for more information about booking in the New Year.
