ERIC (Environmental Records Information Centre) North East collates data which is used to inform nature conservation. For further details and to visit their portal to record or view information on flora and fauna sightings go to www.ericnortheast.org.uk/recording-wildlife.html.
Bird records should be sent to Richard Poyer ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) using the Alnwick and District Natural History Society Bird Record sheet. Please submit the sheet each time with a different file name to help identify the sender and month eg YourNameFeb17.
If you are unsure about grid references then www.streetmap.co.uk may prove helpful to get the reference.
You may still use record cards if you wish. These should be sent to : Richard Poyer, 12 Byron Street, Amble, NE65 0ER.
Records need to arrive by the second day of the month after the recorded month eg March 2nd for February sightings. Records will be collated and sent to the Northumberland and Tyneside Bird Club who have responsibility for the county records.
