We had a fantastic day with Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre recently, running a workshop to introduce people to biological recording. The aim of the workshop was to demystify how to turn your plant and animal sightings into valuable biological records. Stuart, from CBDC, did a great job of taking us through the process. The weather was kind and we also got to head outside for an afternoon putting our new found skills to the test, recording all the plant species we found on a quick walk around the Haig grasslands finding three types of buttercup and two vetches in the first few metres of the car park.
Once we’ve got a full list of the species we saw we’ll post it on here so you can see just how many different species we found.
There are two more workshops planned this summer, we’ll post details when they’re finalised.
