Now is the perfect time to celebrate the variety of wildlife in our city and the many of us who respect, study and love the plants and creatures that live with humans in London. On a rainy September day bird song streamed from mobile phones filled the streets of central London as thousands joined the Peoples’ Walk for Wildlife showing they care deeply about what happens to the biodiversity of the UK. Next summer London will be declared a National Park City with aims to make the capital greener and wilder.
We have such a long history of biological recoding in London, people taking the time to observe and enjoy the wildlife around them. Sharing this knowledge and enthusiasm together is a great way to celebrate our connections with each other and London’s nature.
The first ever London Recorders’ Day is a collaborative effort from the FSC BioLinks project, Greenspace Information for Greater London and the Natural History Museum. This 1-day event will bring together wildlife recorders from across London to hear about some of the exciting projects and initiatives being undertaken by London’s recorders through a series of presentations, with a keynote address by David Lindo (a.k.a. The Urban Birder). In the afternoon, a range of activities will be available for attendees to choose from, including tours of the Natural History Museum and a QGIS demonstration.
The event is subsidised by the Heritage Lottery Funded FSC BioLinks project enabling us to minimise the cost to attendees. The £5 attendance fee includes tea and coffee and a sandwich buffet lunch.
Registration and coffee from 10 am for a 10:30 am start. The event will conclude by 4 pm.
