Recording

Most of our Summer is spent on recording - Casual Recording using iRecord either from your computer or from your iphone. The main purpose of casual recording is to identify key sites.  

A large number of people are involved in Transect Walking which is our way of monitoring our key sites and to measure population trends.  

Timed counts are a good way to count a single species and to map their exact location.  This is useful for habitat management.
