Brecon now has two joint recorders with John Crellin joining Mike Porter who has been recording in the county for over 40 years.
We want to establish a recording group to assist with recording for the next atlas and also, hopefully, re-find some local rarities not seen for many years.The aim is to have informal meetings every Thursday and the email group will be informed a little in advance where the next trip will be – with an open invitation to join John. We also have set five dates for major meetings in 2013:
Tuesday 28th May: Crai area, South of Sennybridge, SN92
Saturday 22nd June: Darren Fawr (a Brecon Wildlife Trust meeting on the mountain above Merthyr Tydfil), SO01
Thursday 27th June: Allt Rhongyr, a new BWT reserve with many old records of interesting species, SN81
Thursday 8th August: Traeth Mawr, a very interesting rainfall-fed raised mire, SN92
Thursday 22nd August: Llangors lake (Llyn Syfaddon. Wales’s largest natural lake. OK so Bala was largest before it was artificially engrossed.), SO12
We are keen to encourage anyone with an interest in botany to join us on these outings. Please email John (firstname.lastname@example.org) to join the mailing list if at all interested.
Brecknockshire is a wonderful county to visit on holiday or for day trips and visiting BSBI members are encouraged to get in touch with us if you would like to meet up or be guided to a particular site. Records from your explorations are of course most welcome (MapMate centre 7g3).
