Following two successful recording days, one at Powdermill Wood near Battle in East Sussex, and one at Petworth Park, we are pleased to announce another recording day in conjunction with Matthew Thomas, Ecologist at Brighton & Hove City Council.
The recording day will be on Friday 2nd June 2006, from 10am to 3pm at Preston Park and two adjacent private gardens for comparison. It is an opportunity to learn more about the urban environment; meet with record centre staff, volunteers, county recorders, expert recorders and beginners; and be part of Brighton and Hove Goes Wild week.
The data collected will help to influence the management of the gardens and the park and will be used to develop planning policy to protect urban green space.
Meet at the main entrance to Preston Park, at the junction of Preston Road and Stanford Avenue (TQ308057 – View a map of the area).
As always, please bring appropriate clothes for all British weather eventualities, sun protection cream, all your own recording equipment such as binoculars, hand-lenses, nets and pooters, packed lunch, drink and so on.
If you would like to attend the day please contact Matthew Thomas on 01273 292371 or drop him an email.
Please get in contact if you have any queries about the proposed field trip. As always please pass this on to anyone else that you think might be interested.
We hope you can make it.
