Standard Data Searches

Species Search

A standard species data search will include all post-1980 records of statutorily protected species, Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) priority species (‘species of principle importance,’ under the 2006 Nerc Act’s Section 41), rare and scarce species, and a selection of invasive non-native species, for a buffer of up to 2 km from a site centroid. Records are provided as a spreadsheet to allow for filtering by designation and taxon group.

Sites Search

A standard sites data search is for non-statutory sites, for up to a 5km radius of a site centroid. Results are provided as a labelled PDF map of site boundaries. Individual site designation citations for County (Local) Wildlife Sites, Local Geological Sites (RIGs) and Sites of Invertebrate Significance may then be requested for a further charge. Statutory site boundaries and citations are available from Natural England, and a labelled PDF map of statutory sites can be provided for a further charge.

Habitat Search

UK Priority Habitat boundaries are available from Natural England. A PDF map of nearby priority habitats can be provided for a further charge. Although old, the 1980s Phase 1 habitat survey of Cumbria is the only comprehensive coverage habitat data available for the whole county. A PDF map for your site can be provided for a further charge.

@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
