Species Data

Our 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 we receive records from over 800 Cumbrian recorders, covering most invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, invasive species, and more. Our 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 other contributors.

Additional Species Data

Although we hold a vast number records, our data is not exhaustive and it does not include all species observations in Cumbria. Other local and national recording schemes, as well as the NBN Atlas, may include records that we do not have. For a list of alternative sources of information, please follow the link below to view our Other Data Sources page.

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.
