Recorders' Seminar 2006

Our annual Biological Recorders’ Seminar was once again a huge success, possibly being the most bustling and vibrant one yet. With talks ranging from landscape scale ecology to a one metre square nature reserve; from plants, birds and bugs to mammals, molluscs, and brownfield sites, the day went down extremely well with all in attendance.

A big thank you to all of our speakers: Martin Willing (Conchological Society of Great Britain & Ireland), Matt Shardlow (Buglife), Dawn Scott (University of Brighton), Patrick Roper, Peter Hughes (RSPB), Bruce Middleton (South Downs Joint Committee) and Rich Howorth (West Weald Landscape Project). We must also thank Barry Yates for the use of his spectacularly large projection screen. Thanks must go to all of the staff, volunteers and friends of the Record Centre who helped make the day run so smoothly; your hard work is, as ever, greatly appreciated. Finally, once again, the biggest thanks of all go out to the recording community of Sussex – your tremendous and ongoing efforts make all this possible. Thank you, and see you next year.
