EMAIL FROM THE NORFOLK BIOLOGICAL INFORMATION CENTRE (NBIC)

Graham,

We would encourage records of any kind to come to us.

Postcode (with house number and road, if known) is fine, but an Ordnance Survey Grid Reference is preferable. You can find a grid reference from a postcode or address by going to one of the two websites below (the top one being the best), plus obviously using an OS paper map:

http://www.gridreferencefinder.com/

http://www.freemaptools.com/find-british-national-grid-reference-from-map.htm

For a record to be useful it needs a What, Where, When and Who. Eg  Sedge warbler, TG 23644 07555, 06/10/2014. No record is trivial to us, as the common species of today could be the rarities of tomorrow. More information here:

Yes we can provide records for a post code or such an area.  Usually what we do is provide records for a particular search radius around a point, the search radius being completely up to you. Eg 2km search around TG 23644 07555. Or we could search for all records in a particular parish for example.

Yes we would definitely be interested in receiving regular YVS records….the more the merrier.

Re: Sedge warbler. October is the end of its residence in UK before migration, so it is certainly possible it was what you saw.
