CBDC Recording Days

CBDC organised its first recording days in 2015. Their purpose is to invite local recorders to wildlife sites, SSSIs, etc. that have not been visited for several years in order to update the designation documentation. They also provide opportunities for recorders to share their particular expertise with others and visit private sites that they would otherwise not have access to. Contact our Recording Officer if you want more information.

The Waxcap
So called due to their waxy and sometimes slimy appearance. They appear in late autumn on unimproved grassland. Unimproved grassland is just that areas that have not been fertilised or had biocides added this can include rough pastures and some lawns such as graveyards https://t.co/IB7Tb9QDyt

How many lichenologists does it take to open a gate? This many apparently, especially when situated in Naddle Forest supporting beautiful communities like this! #Haweswater #LakeDistrict #Cumbria https://t.co/shyApNP8wG
