Our annual spring Recorders Gathering is an informal meeting when we get together to look back on the recording highlights of the previous year, and discuss and plan surveys and monitoring for the coming one.
We usually have 90-100 people attending, from all over Scotland, almost all volunteers, but also conservation staff, consultants, and colleagues from our HQ in Dorset. There will be coffee from 10am, and the Gathering starts at 10.30, finishing at about 4.45pm, with an hour for lunch.
There will be a £20 charge to cover refreshments and the light buffet lunch. Bookings are open now, please contact the Stirling Office for a booking form and directions to Battleby email@example.com
