Thank you ever so much to all of you who came and supported the first ever Cumbrae Bioblitz! We had a fantastic weekend at FSC Millport and it was great to meet so many people with an interest in Natural History from the local area (not only contributing time and expertise over the weekend but also inputting records and verifying photos).

We have over 600 records documented. This is 6 times more than the total number of records on IRecord for the whole of Cumbrae prior to the event! It is fantastic to get Cumbrae on the map and fill in gaps in recording for the island.

We also got a full page spread covering the event in the local paper, a summary of which can be read at www.largsandmillportnews.com/news/millport/articles/2015/08/10/541062-700-up-cumbrae-bioblitz-success/
