The RNHS has a long tradition of wildlife recording to help gauge these changes in our natural world.
We publish regular newsletters and an annual report.
Our wildlife information contributes to county and national records.
All members of the society, whatever their expertise, are encouraged to participate. You can help by sending in record cards when you notice things, (such as the first swallow or cowslip) or you can join one of our recording groups to monitor amongst other things:
