Species Data

The CBDC database of over 2 million digitised records has been built up over a period of 20 years and includes over 12,000 species across all major taxon groups. Every year CBDC receives records from c 800 Cumbrian recorders, covering a wide range of taxonomic groups, including most invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and invasive species. CBDC’s data includes 236 datasets including those from local natural history groups, individual recorders, local and national recording schemes, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, statutory bodies and many more.

Additional Species Data

Although CBDC holds many records it does not include all species observations in Cumbria. National schemes and larger local organisations may share their records via NBN Gateway. Anyone wishing to use this data are advised to contact the organisation directly. Read more….

Exciting stuff as the famous Ernest Blezard habitat bird cases are installed for #Tullie125 #exhibition. Here red kite, southern puffins, kestrel chicks, merlins shown. Recreating the fondly remembered bird room atmosphere of older times. https://t.co/0EPsd4Mj3S

Best ever farmland bird ringing day - phenomenal 142 Yellowhammers caught inc a 5 year old with c700 Yellowhammers on site! 400 Tree Sparrows present with 31 ringed but 44 retrapped originally ringed as nestlings across the landscape. I think working with the farmers is working! https://t.co/5ZCAghpSBX CumbriaBDC photo

We had a great first #Winter #Invertebrate talk last night with Ian Beddison. A fascinating presentation followed by soup, cake & a good natter! This was one of our favourite of Ian's photos, beautiful Ruby-tailed wasps found in County #Durham 😍 @NorthPennAONB @HeritageFundNE https://t.co/1xbUFOHTbO CumbriaBDC photo
