National wildlife recording charity BRISC (Biological Recording in Scotland) will this year be holding their annual conference at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries on Saturday 27th October. Following the theme of 'What's new in Scotland?', the programme will include presentations from local and national experts, including a keynote speach from Prof. Alastair Dawson of Aberdeen University on 'One thousand years of Scotland’s weather and climate'. Other speakers will give updates on the status of Leisler's Bats, Grass Snakes in Scotland and on recent changes in dragonfly distributions in SW Scotland. The afternoon will include an open discussion session and excursions to nearby wildlife sites. Displays and posters will be exhibited throughout the event*. The conference is open to anyone, and cost will be £25 for non-members (£20 for BRISC members) to include lunch, refreshments and excursions. The event, which is co-organised by DGERC, will be a great opportunity to meet other wildlife recorders from Dumfries & Galloway and elsewhere in Scotland.
