A talk by Colin Russell including a practical session on recording wildlife sightings around Ferryside
Saturday 1st October, Calon Y Fferi –Main Building, 1- 3pm,
West Wales Biodiversity Information Centre invites you to record your sightings of the wildlife in your area.
WWBIC maintains a database of almost 2 million species records for West Wales which are used by many public bodies to inform decisions which might affect wildlife. Of the 1,846 species records we hold within 1km of Ferryside we have many plant and bird records, but only one mollusc, one reptile record and none for amphibians. That means we have no records of any frogs or toads near Ferryside!
Following a short introduction, we will take a walk outdoors and record some common species we see, then return to put these records into a system that anyone can access online. You will need only a notebook and pen and clothing suitable for the weather.
