Storm damage and Welsh Wave

Just thought we would share a few photos of our nearest Welsh Wave site, hoping that any Rowan, Alder or Birch that used to be in here have survived!

New MICRO entry sheet

For all regular vc46 recorders.

There is a new micro-moth entry sheet available. It is important that this new sheet is used as there have been changes in taxonomy and several new species.   This is for Microsoft office only.

If you regularly record micros please drop me an email and I will send it to you.

This is also county specific so you will know as you enter if your moth is new for the county and what evidence may be needed to verify a species.  It will also be a great help to me when verifying records as it avoids spellings, typos, etc.
