Here are this year’s meetings. Please bring lunch, waterproofs and waterproof boots or wellies. Anyone is welcome and we often see interesting mammals, birds and insects. Meetings start at 10.30am.
The Scottish Biodiversity Information Forum (SBIF) is currently undertaking a Review of the Biological Recording Infrastructure in Scotland.
As part of the information gathering stage of the Review they have just released a questionnaire and would like to hear your views! By completing the questionnaire you will be informing the Review of your requirements for the biological recording infrastructure. Everyone's views matter, whatever your role, whether you are an individual who records and manages your own records, work for a large NGO or government agency, or have another role within the community.
Although their primary remit is for Scotland, they are interested in hearing from people from across the UK as the issues and improvements needed could be common to all. If sufficient responses are received from beyond Scotland, they will summarise findings by country; including a summary in Welsh.
Deadline is 7th April 2017.
