Welcome! Gloucestershire Naturalists’ Society (GNS) is the natural history recording organisation for Gloucestershire, UK, recording all of the flora and fauna in the county. The society publishes a quarterly newsletter, a journal and an annual bird report as well as organising lectures and field meetings. The society was formed in 1948 with the aim of promoting an interest in the varied wildlife of the county. At the same time, it assumed the task of recording the county’s flora and fauna. To assist in this, the society appoints and supports county recorders for all aspects of wildlife.
