Come along and learn about how your wildlife observations are making a difference to our understanding of nature.
This 1-day event will bring together wildlife recorders from across London to hear about some of the exciting projects and initiatives being undertaken in the capital through a series of presentations.
London Recorders Day is a collaborative effort between the FSC BioLinks project, Greenspace Information for Greater London and the Natural History Museum. The first ever London Recorders Day took place in November 2018 and was a huge success, so the event has been repeated in 2019and 2021, with the 4th event due to take place on Sat 29 Oct 2022.
This hybrid conference will take place at the Natural History Museum in London and also be accessible to a virtual audience via Zoom.

London Natural History Society Updates Keiron Brown will provide updates from the London Natural History Society and their recording and education efforts across London.
Recording the Unrecordable Some invertebrates can be very difficult to identify, leading to their status as ‘under-recorded’ groups. Gino Brignoli will discuss how the FSC BioLinks project has been tackling this issue in London and share the project achievements and findings.
Bursaries and Subsidies
FSC BioLinks is an exciting project for FSC in the South East and West Midlands, bringing together existing volunteers with skills in biological recording and identification, and new volunteers.
This project provides subsidised training courses, learning opportunities and digital tools focussed on invertebrate identification for anyone involved or interested in biological recording, to build and strengthen the community.
Invertebrates provide us with many useful ecosystem services, like pollination and decomposition, which we cannot survive without but their numbers are declining. Few people know how to identify or record invertebrates meaning there is a lack of data
We are delighted to have been awarded a grant of £1.23 million from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for this project.
