CBDC Recording Days

Each year CBDC organises a small programme of recording days on county wildlife sites, SSSIs that have not been recently recorded or private land that has never been recorded. Recording days allow recorders to share their particular expertise with others and visit sites that they would otherwise not have access to.

If you want to get involved or have a site you believe would be suitable for a recording day please contact Stuart our Recording Officer.

2019

34 Recorders visited Harrington Nature Reserve; Willowford Farm,  Gilsland; Gowbarrow Hall, Watermillock and the Lowther Estate.  Together they recorded species in at least 24 taxonomic groups.

 

2019

Gowbarrow Hall is a farm looking to change how it manages its land.  CBDC recorders' infomarion will contribute to the farm's understanding of what species are there currently.  This baseline will be used to inform future biodiversity monitoring.

 

2018

Rose Castle, Wharton Tarn, Coalfell, Dunsthwaite and Setmurthy Common were visited by Cumbria Recorders. Their keen eyes recorded a range of species from Adder's Tongue Fern to Great Crested Newts. Interesting discussions were held had over lunch regarding caddis fly nets and the egg laying of the dark giant horsefly.

 

2017

Jordan Hills, Thornhill Moss and Meadows, Haybridge Nature Reserve and Thorneythwaite Farm, Borrowdale were visited.  As well as CBDC recorders we were pleased to welcome 14 trainee recorders to our Haybridge day.

#MondayMotivation It’s been a while since we've done a #SpotTheAnimal challenge, so let's see if you all still have your species spotting skills! Which of our native reptile species is in this photo? Can you find it? https://t.co/raBZ5u1oPr CumbriaBDC photo
