CEDaR and Butterfly Conservation Northern Ireland Call for Records
CEDaR in association with Butterfly Conservation Northern Ireland are holding a series of end of year "Call for Records" days. We will be visiting the Ulster AmericanFolk Park, Crom Estate, Murlough Nature Reserve and Oxford Island. We are keen to help collect your species records, advise on recording methods including online recording and demonstrate the Recorder 6 software.
Please come along with your recording cards, notebooks, pen drives etc. and we will assist while you enter and pass your records to CEDaR and/or Butterfly Conservation.
Posters (PDF) for each event can be downloaded below along with a poster detailing all four days.
