Ninfield Recording Day

Ninfield recording day 2008

Another great day out in the field was had at the Adastra Recording Day at Ninfield on Friday 23rd May. We all enjoyed recording in the sunshine and spending some time with fellow recorders.

Working in partnership with the Sussex Botanical Recording Society we certainly filled a gap in the species data on their database and also the BRC database. At the beginning of the day we only had three non-plant records for the eight 1km squares, but along with the data from the two botanical groups that explored the area we will have many more records for the area including beetles, dragonflies, mammals, butterflies, birds, fungi, lichens and slime-moulds. So a big thank you to all of the recorders for your various contributions on the day.

We also ran five moth traps in the evening; we recorded over 55 species including Alder Kitten, Alder Moth, Miller and Lime Hawkmoth.
