The latest edition of the Leicestershire & Rutland Recorder – an attractive 48-page full colour journal dedicated to the recording of wildlife in the two counties – is out now.
Published by the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust on behalf of the County Recorders Network, it is edited by well-known local naturalist and Trust member Steve Woodward, and contains 24 articles on a wide range of species, plus many photographs, from a number of wildlife experts. There is a detailed article on Charnwood Lodge National Nature Reserve, a report on wildlife recording at Rutland Water, a beautifully illustrated account of invertebrate recording at Bradgate Park, and much more.
The Trust believes that the recording of our wildlife by local naturalists is essential, so that we have the necessary information to carry out effective nature conservation work. This journal provides a place for naturalists to publish their findings so that others can make use of them.
Copies of the Recorder No.11 can be obtained from the Trust office for £5 (plus £1 p & p). Telephone 0116 262 9968 or email [email protected]. Copies are also on sale at the Trust office and from the shop within the Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve.
