CBDC and Tullie House Museum have a number of resources available to support local recorders.
From time to time CBDC publishes from the local recording community in Cumbria.
1. Inventory of Urban Gull Colonies in Cumbria
|Tullie House Collections and Library||
The museum holds a large amount of zoological, botanical and geological material. Items in the collection can be viewed by appointment by local recorders and researchers.
Specific equipment is necessary to successfully record some taxon groups. For new recorders the expense may be off putting. Therefore CBDC has some a moth trap and micrscopes that it can loan out.
We have selected some common tools that help you map and record the correct OS grid references.
There are a number of field guides, species keys and websites on the internet that will help you with identification.
