Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre

The Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre at Tullie House Museum, Carlisle keeps wildlife information for the county of Cumbria. Tullie House Museum, in its role as a local natural history museum, has collected and disseminated records of wildlife in Cumbria since its inception in 1893. From the early 1990s the Museum has developed a computerised database of species and habitat records in Cumbria and has taken the central role in providing a local biodiversity data service for the county. This role was restyled as Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre (CBDC) in 2010, a not-for-profit organisation hosted by Tullie House Museum and advised by local stakeholders.

A List of Birds in Cumbria - another CBDC Occasional Publication. Chris Hind and Robin Sellers present a new and authoritative list of the species of bird known to have occurred in Cumbria since 1800. Amongst other things it explains the criteria used to determine which species are included (and which excluded), shows which subspecies occur in the county, indicates the conservation status of the species and provides a brief summary of the status of the species in the county.

CBDC's Solway Nature Networks volunteers had their final event cancelled due to Covid19. Funded by The Robin Rigg Community Fund and Cumbria Community Foundation the project has had its last get together, visiting the Maryport Coastal Park, where the newly created butterfly scrapes put their botanical skills to the test. The volunteers were not the only ones enjoying lunch so was this Red-legged shieldbug (Pentatoma rufipes). Thank you to all those that came and thank you to all those that could not make it. Keep On Recording!

#KMF2021 We Are Ready!

The sun has come out as the final pieces of the festival jigsaw are put into place.

What an absolutely stunning backdrop. We think this year is going to be an absolute blast.

@SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!

Finally! While the rest of the UK flowering season is well under way, it's taken until yesterday to see my first Early Purple Orchid of 2021 in #Shetland. Growing in a serpentine fell field, they're always tiny, but share their home with other special plants, like Moss Campion. https://t.co/GYBQp2nHwZ CumbriaBDC photo
