Click the map to select a tetrad (2 x 2km square). After a short wait a list of the data currently available for that square will be presented. Click the species group you are interested in for a list of the records plus the date it was last recorded in that square.
Under 'Layers' select a tick box to show the density of UK BAP species, Local BAP species or protected species found in each tetrad. The brighter the colour the greater the number of different species found. The total number of different species in each group can also be found by clicking 'Species groups' in the Layers section.
These data are uploaded by the official county recorder for each group, or a representative on their behalf. The accuracy of the data depends on what the county recorder has presented and in some cases only represents a few key species. A list of those groups involved can be found on the 'Recording Groups' page.
The species records presented here are intended to flag up the presence of particular species in a given area. The data are not to be used for commercial species enquiries. For more detailed records enquiries should be made to each of the groups involved.
