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.

Interesting article - the only record of the Cerambyx Cerdo in Cumbria was caught and put into the collection @TullieHouse in 1900 by FH Day. CBDC are interested to receive Grass snake records - most records are in the South Cumbria. https://t.co/WSGE814iX1
