County Recorders

ESSEX FIELD CLUB RECORDERS

The Recorders compile and maintain detailed records of Essex flora, fauna and geology. They welcome records from members, specialists and other naturalists and these should include species, date of observation, location, name of recorder, who identified the species and, where possible, a six-figure grid reference and any habitat or other relevant ecological data. They will also assist with identification and answer queries on their subjects but where a written reply is necessary please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. If no contact details are given here please contact us.

The data are maintained to a high level of scientific integrity by our specialist county recorders, many of whom are national recording scheme organisers or recognised national specialists, a task we have undertaken in its current form for 60 years.
