Montgomeryshire Vice County Recorders

If you wish to contact the relevant Montgomeryshire recorder directly, here's how!

In every vice-county, across the UK, there are people who give up there spare time to maintain a database of records of those plants or animals in which they are interested. This information can then be used to help protect species, enhance & create habitats, produce distribution atlases and monitor change. Many of these vice-county recorders are specialists in their subject and are keen to engender this interest in others.
