CBDC Equipment Loan Scheme
Over time CBDC plans to build up a collection of recording equipment available for loan for free to local recorders, groups and for identification and other recording events and workshops. Currently we have two microscopes and a moth trap available to borrow free of charge.
Recorders may borrow a microscope (Binocular, 45deg Head, Dual Magnification 10X & 30X) for identification of Cumbrian specimens for up to three months at a time without charge. Please see the terms and conditions for more information and fill out a loan request form if you would like to borrow one. For larger groups please use the contact form at Contact Us or the email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Local recorders who are members of the Cumbria Moth Group may borrow, for up to 2 weeks at a time without charge, a portable Skinner trap (15W actinic bulb) in a package which includes a battery and battery charger, as well as a copy of Waring and Townsend’s 2009 revised edition of ‘a Field Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland’.
This loan is a joint venture between CBDC and members of the Cumbria Moth Group to encourage anyone who wishes to try out moth recording in places that do not have mains power.
