Surveys

Special Surveys and Calls for Records

Whilst we always welcome records of any species, we also put out calls of records for particular species or taxa so that we can learn more about their distributions within the county, or at a particular site. Currently, records of tree bumblebees, macro moths and waxcaps are needed. Any further calls for species’ records will be highlighted here.

Other Cumbrian recording surveys

Wildwatch North Pennines

This recording project for the area covered by the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty aims to increase biological recording in the North Pennines. All records sent to Wildwatch will be shared with CBDC.

Cumbria Freshwater Invasive Non-native Species Initiative

Records of non-native species should be sent first to this initiative, so action can be taken if required. This can also be done via the plant tracker phone app. These records will be shared with CBDC.
