Other Data Sources

CBDC does not hold complete copies of all datasets relating to Cumbria, particularly formal recording and monitoring schemes. Some of these datasets are available from the NBN Gateway. CBDC does not currently search the NBN as part of its data searches. To improve its data services CBDC is working with local and national schemes to incorporate their records into the CBDC database.

For some research projects and major developments it will be appropriate to contact such organisations separately. If you search the NBN Gateway please note that not all data providers give permission to use their records for research or commercial purposes.

Other data sources include:

The Wetland Bird Survey The primary source of detailed bird monitoring data on wetlands, including Cumbria’s significant estuaries and lakes.
British Trust for Ornithology Breeding Bird Survey and other bird surveys.
Walney Bird Observatory A long-running bird ringing station on Walney island in the south-west of Cumbria and also collates all bird records on the island.
BSBI Cumbria Botany Group Tetrad records post Flora of Cumbria (1996).
Cumbria Bird Club Records outside main atlas recording surveys.
Westmorland Bat Group May hold some extra records.
National Bat Monitoring Programme The Bat Conservation Trust may hold some extra records.

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
