Gwent-Glamorgan Recorders Newsletter - Issue 11 - Autumn October 2014
Welcome to the eleventh issue of the Gwent-Glamorgan Recorders’ Newsletter.
Quite a few of our recorders have been looking at some of the more obscure groups of invertebrates this year. First up is an article about the invertebrates that some ‘Pan-species Listers’ recently recorded (p1-2). Another ghost slug has been spotted and photographed attacking a live earthworm (p8)! The strange and wonderful contents of the Severn Estuary strandline has been recorded (p15-16), and Ichneumon wasps have been identified as they visit a moth trap (p18).
Margam Country Park hosted a Welsh Bat Night event combining volunteer training, public bat walk, and bat surveys into one super event (p12). The ‘Flora of Conifer Plantations in Neath Port Talbot’ (p20-21) gives us food for thought. Perhaps we ought not to rule out recording on conifer plantations as they have the potential to be very biodiverse. Enjoy the newsletter!
