It would be great to encourage keen naturalists and wildlife spotters who may not be actively involved in recording at the moment to meet up and do some focussed wildlife spot-ting and identification in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. Working with the West Wales Biodiversity Information Centre (WWBIC), 1km squares which are currently very under-recorded could be targeted, or sites of particular wildlife interest could be explored. The group would aim to identify accurately the species seen and submit these sightings as biological records to WWBIC.
Anyone with a keen interest in natural history would be very welcome to come along and take part, regardless of experience or level of knowledge. Support can be provided to the uninitiated in the process of biological re-cording and WWBIC will ensure records are properly verified and entered into their data-base.
If we can get a few enthusiastic and hardy souls together, the focus will be on shared enjoyment of Pembrokeshire's natural heritage and the outcome will hopefully be some good quality biological data, helping to fill some of the gaps in the County's database of records.
