Unrecorded 1km Squares in Powys & the Brecon Beacons National Park - BIS Guides
There are just over 100 unrecorded monads, or 1x1km squares in the BIS area, with 6 of these in the Brecon Beacons National Park. These are areas where we hold no wildlife records - can you help make records in these areas?
The pdf map below shows where the unrecorded monads are with the grid reference. Many are in remote and often difficult to access areas, and some are border squares with other Local Environmental Records Centres in both Wales and England. Some of these border squares only have a very small area within Powys.
