CBDC Recording Days

CBDC organised its first recording days in 2015. Their purpose is to invite local recorders to wildlife sites, SSSIs, etc. that have not been visited for several years in order to update the designation documentation. They also provide opportunities for recorders to share their particular expertise with others and visit private sites that they would otherwise not have access to. Contact our Recording Officer if you want more information.

Unexpected item in the Leven area. Pete Martin was not expecting to film a harbour porpoise when walking along R. Leven, Harbour Bridge in January this year. https://t.co/l9sfr4YaC7
