Forgive us if you are not a Shropshire-based recorder, but those who are may like to know that the FSC Invertebrate Challenge and the Shropshire Spider Group have organised a one-day training workshop on identifying and recording spiders and harvestmen. It will concentrate on those species that can be identified and recorded in the field without the need for collecting. All of these species - even the most common ones - are under-recorded in Shropshire so all new records and recorders can make a valuable contribution.

Best wishes to you all and happy recording, wherever you do it!
