The VC in our blog title stands for Vice-County & the reason for this is that, as well as opposing all forms of fox persecution, we encourage recording of this species on NatureSpot. Vice-Counties are a system used for biological recording to ensure that, whilst county boundaries may change politically, Vice-County boundaries remain constant & fixed so direct comparisons can be made between modern species records & historical species records. Vice-County 55 is a combination of Leicestershire & Rutland.
