Welcome to the first issue of the Cofnod Newsletter, packed with a range of articles focusing on wildlife and recording in North Wales. As a reader we hope you’ll be able to contribute articles for future issues. We’ve stretched the definition of Spring this year so that we can produce two issues per year!
Cofnod is launching a new initiative, Monad of the Month, to encourage recorders to get out to locations with few or no records. Every month we will be promoting one monad in each vice-county in the hope of filling in some of the gaps on our maps.

Here is Bwletin 138 - a special edition for Eisteddfod Llanrwst. The back page, skilfully designed by Gareth Pritchard, features Y Gogarth, the Great Orme, a great place for you to visit while in the area. On the centrefold there is a scrapbook of Llanrwst gleanings taken from the Tywyddiadur, and a selection of graphs and images illustrating different aspects of phenology. “What is phenology?” I hear you ask. Visit the Cymdeithas Edward Llwyd stand on the Maes to learn more.
