iRecord Training Update

Unfortunately, the advertised iRecord Training course in the recent e-bulletin is now fully booked.

It looks as this course has been very popular, and sold out quickly. It may be that the FSC offer another round of training based on high demand – we will let you know about any developments.

If you were thinking of attending the training, please do still register your interest at iwatchwildlife@gmail.com and we can then contact you directly should any further opportunities arise.

Apologies for any disappointment.
