It will act as local biological recording resource with news of local wildlife recording activities and linking to local and national recording websites. Please contact us if you have any comments or features you would like to see.

The BIS database reached 1.5 million records in early January 2013. This is thanks to the 2012 Odonata records received from Bob Dennison for Radnorshire. Also the ongoing Brecknock Flora records (135,000) from Mike Porter.
The mangers report to the members was presented to the AGM on 15th November 2012. it is now available to download here.
We have now added local recording experts contact details for the BIS area under 'Contact Local County Recorder' menu bar. You can email the appropriate expert for each county directly from that page to get further ecological advice on their taxon group. You may also wish to send records to them directly or any records sent via BIS will be passed on to the appropriate county recorder.
Please note: BIS has a new fax number. The new number is 0843 5571315. Please update your records if you use fax to communicate with BIS.
