Welcome to the SaSq squares for July 2018

This months unrecorded squares are near Brecon, Rhosgoch & Pen-y-bont-fawr in north Montgomeryshire. All have easy access with minor roads running through along with several rights of way. If you do go out recording follow a common sense approach and have a look at our notes.

July will see lots of butterflies and dragonflies on the wing so look out for these.
