Recording Days


Worcestershire Recorders recording days are full day visits to a variety of sites, both Worcestershire Wildlife Reserves and private land. The aim of the day is to find and record as many species as possible, to provide a base list for the site. All records are sent the Worcestershire Biological Records Centre, and uploaded to national databases.

Recording days are held from 10am to 4pm, traditionally on a summer Saturday.


Six recording days are arranged for 2024 on the following dates:
