Surveys

Whilst we always welcome records of any species, we occasionally put out calls of records for particular species or taxa so that we can learn more about their distributions within the county, or at a particular site.

Harvest Mouse Survey December 2020 – February 2021

CBDC and the Cumbria Mammal Group are looking for recorders to look out for harvest mice nests to help us improve our knowledge of the distribution of this illusive mouse.  Read more …

We are particularly interested in receiving records of pollinators.  Visit Get Cumbria Buzzing and Record the Buzz for more information.

Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with latest calls for records.

Finally! While the rest of the UK flowering season is well under way, it's taken until yesterday to see my first Early Purple Orchid of 2021 in #Shetland. Growing in a serpentine fell field, they're always tiny, but share their home with other special plants, like Moss Campion. https://t.co/GYBQp2nHwZ CumbriaBDC photo

So this little friend found recently in Dumfriesshire turns out to be Dinocheirus panzeri, a first for Dumfriesshire and to the whole SWSEIC area. Thanks to @PseudoscorpUK for identifying the specimens. https://t.co/MsNsST0UVz CumbriaBDC photo
