Our County Recorder, Allan Binding, logged some 15,000 records last year! Obviously we cannot cover such numbers here. So, we are particularly interested in first sightings, unusual sightings, in fact anything newsworthy and which you think others would be interested to know about. If in doubt, send it anyway! We look forward to hearing from you.
