Read all about it – the latest edition of the Leicestershire & Rutland Recorder is out now.
This attractive 52-page full colour journal is dedicated to the recording of wildlife in the two counties.
Published by the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust on behalf of the County Recorders’ Network, it is edited by well-known local naturalist Steve Woodward.
You can enjoy 23 articles on a wide range of species, plus photographs, from a number of wildlife experts including: the effectiveness of nature reserves in conserving Lepidoptera – Adrian Russell; survival of the now rare Wall Brown butterfly in the Charnwood Forest – Matthew Billings; seaside plants in Leicestershire and Rutland – Geoffrey Hall; reptile surveys at Bradgate Park and Ketton Quarry – Neill Talbot; woodland birds – Peter Williams, Ken Goodrich and Dave Robbins; sedges of Ulverscroft Nature Reserve – Steve Woodward; farmland birds on the Shenton Estate – Stephen Smith; reintroduction of water voles to Rutland – Linda Biddle; scarce beetles in VC55 – Graham Finch; bog-mosses and other bryophyte records – Uta Hamzaoui; biological recording in the Heart of The National Forest: The Black to Green Project – Ben Devine; bat surveys at Rutland Water and Holwell nature reserves – Jenny Harris; and much more.
The Trust believes that the recording of our counties’ 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.
