Species Data

The CBDC database of over 2 million digitised records has been built up over a period of 20 years and includes over 12,000 species across all major taxon groups. Every year CBDC receives records from c 800 Cumbrian recorders, covering a wide range of taxonomic groups, including most invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and invasive species. CBDC’s data includes 236 datasets including those from local natural history groups, individual recorders, local and national recording schemes, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, statutory bodies and many more.

Additional Species Data

Although CBDC holds many records it does not include all species observations in Cumbria. National schemes and larger local organisations may share their records via NBN Gateway. Anyone wishing to use this data are advised to contact the organisation directly.

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
