Completed Projects

Wildwatch – training new biological recorders, mapping and publishing results Wildwatch was a 3 year project in the North Pennines AONB. The aim was to recruit and train local people to record their wildlife. CBDC helped collate the base line data, ran a training session on dataflow and helped produce the species maps at the end of the project.

SAVE THE DATE: 29th February 2020-CBDC Recorders' Conference. New date will allow everyone time to process 2019 records and provide an opportunity for "hot off the press" reports and presentations. We haven't decided a theme yet...but the date is triggering a few ideas. CumbriaBDC photo

@solwaywalker Thanks Ann. Sending it to me is a start we will add it to the Cumbria records. If you have any other records for the Solway I can add them to our List. The volunteers we recruited last year wanted to focus on plants so we are still short on shore data.

@solwaywalker @TurfPix Not a commonly recorded fish - NBN atlas shows a couple of records just off the Silloth coast. CBDC does not have records for this species (not that we get much marine data). Will you be sending your record off to anyone? Debs
