The Sussex Biological Recorders’ Seminar on Saturday 11 February is now open for bookings, and you’re invited!
If you’ve ever thought about getting more involved in recording wildlife in Sussex – there is no greater introduction than coming along to the seminar-formerly-known-as-‘Adastra’.
We’re really excited about the talks we’ve got lined up this year. There’ll be lots of local interest with our very own Barry Yates talking to us about the saltmarsh re-creation at Rye Harbour; Paul Johnson on the reptiles and amphibians of Sussex; Tom Forward & Brad Scott taking us on a tour of the natural history of Forest Row; an update from Michael Blencowe on ‘The Butterflies of Sussex’; and David Plummer sharing his findings from the ‘BN5’ Owl Project.
We’ve also got a chap called Chris Du Feu coming all the way from Nottinghamshire to introduce us to the wonderful world of slugs. (Chris has promised to waive his speaker’s fee in its entirety, if Sussex biological recorders bring some slugs along to the seminar for him to identify. So please bring slugs!) Mark Gurney from the national Weevils & Bark Beetles recording scheme will be sharing his love of Weevils. And Brighton resident, Chloë Rose, will also be joining us to share her experiences with the Natural History Museum’s Identification Trainers for the Future programme.
