Sites to Survey

Possible sites for survey in 2019

We are now considering sites for surveys during 2019.
As 2019 will be the final year for the collection of records towards Atlas 2020, then priority will be given towards under-recorded areas, but not exclusively.

If you have any suggestions for sites to survey then please contact the recorders whose emails are listed below.
