The 2018 BSBI Recorders' Conference was a great success and attracted 69 delegates.  It was held on 12th - 14th October at FSC's Preston Montford Field Centre so everything - talks, workshops, pop-up bookshop, meals and accommodation - was on the same site, with a range of packages to suit everyone's requirements.
