Branch Members News
Members so registered are entitled to use the appropriate designatory letters after their names (M.B.N.A., A.B.N.A., F.B.N.A.) Upgrading is not automatic, and is a slow process, the Grades Committee has to consider each applicants case separately, and takes into account the field natural history experience and qualifications of each applicant. Each applicant has to have the support of at least one registered member or fellow, and a second appropriate referee. BNA members who are interested in being upgraded should read the membership grades guidelines on the national website or contact local branch organiser.
Presently some of our branch members have specialist interests in Biology, Botany, Microscopic Pond Life, Entomology, Zoology, Ornithology, and the present and past natural history of Britain. Most members have an interest in all fields of Natural History, many of which they have a limited knowledge of, but membership of this small group allows for us all to learn together.
All projects carried out by our BNA branch members must have the landowners permission, be they a group or individual activity. Our Canal and Riverside projects are subject to Risk Assessments and are approved of by the Canal and River Trust.
Amphibian Transects: Our Science Officer Dr Deborah Adams is trying to set up some amphibian recording schemes on ponds in our region, if you would like to get involved please contact our branch organizer who will arrange for Deborah to contact you.
