Standard Data Searches

Species Search

A standard species data search will include all post 1980 records of statutorily protected species, Nerc Act (2008) S41 species of principal importance (also known as BAP priority species), 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 filtering by designation and taxon group.

Sites Search

A standard sites data search is for non-statutory sites plus statutory Limestone Pavement Orders 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. 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.

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. https://t.co/YJnV1kh5Ev 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
