Identifying our mammals, amphibians and reptiles

The Hertfordshire Mammal, Amphibian and Reptile Atlas project (Herts MARA) will be running an introductory one-day training course on Saturday 4 March 2017.  Held at the University of Hertfordshire's Bayfordbury field station, it covers identification and recording and is perfect for anyone generally interested in natural history who would like to make a more confident and systematic contribution to the survey.
