Current Projects

Cold Blooded and Spineless This project is training new volunteers to identify and record a range of invertebrate, amphibian and reptiles species in the North Pennines AONB. CBDC will help produce the maps of these records and identify areas of invertebrate significance.
Eycott Hill Nature Reserve CBDC supported the 2016 Eycott Bioblitz and has run training courses for volunteers new to biological recording.
Rusland Horizons CBDC has fully digitised the 1988 Phase 1 habitat Survey for the Rusland Horizons Project Area. We are currently analysing more recent surveys and data to bring the map up to date. Read more
PondNet CBDC supported Freshwater Habitats Trust to secure survey sites for their volunteers to record rare species in
Cumbia Bird Atlas CBDC worked with members of the Cumbria Bird Club to produce over 1,500 species maps. Read more
Data searches CBDC carries out a range of desk top surveys for species, habitats and sites in Cumbria.

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
