The annual IW Recorders’ Conference is set to make a return next month Saturday 2nd February, 2pm – 4:30pm at Arreton Community Centre. As usual, there will be a packed programme of presentations showcasing current species related projects and surveys, displays and of course delicious cakes and tea during the interval.
Presentations this year include Roy Dennis talking about White-tailed Eagle introduction; Paul Davies talking about meadow management at Newtown; Emily Stroud from the Wildlife Trust talking about the Secrets of the Solent project; and Tina Whitmore bringing us up to date with the iWatch Wildlife Project. Please bring photographs or mounted specimens of last year‘s interesting Island wildlife finds (or items that provided a challenge to identify) to share with your fellow recorders on the Island Wildlife display table.
There is parking available next to the community centre but if this is full, the school car park opposite can be used.
