How to contact a species recording group or county recorder (expert)

 

This page provides contact details for a range of species recording groups across Shropshire.

Further details of how to submit records or make an enquiry to a group can be found on the relevant page of each species recording group on Natural Shropshire (by following the top link for that group) and details of national recording scheme details can be found by following the link to the national society for that species.  Usually the minimum information required is: Your name (or the person that saw it), species name (a photograph may be sufficient in some cases), where you saw it (a grid reference is ideal), and when you saw it.

We have provided a named contact in each case, this person is the county recorder for that group of species and records can be emailed directly to them. Please include your own contact details so that records can be verified.

National Recording

 
Most national and local recording groups send their data to the Biological Records Centre (
www.brc.ac.uk).   Many of the more difficult to identify species groups do not have a local contact.  For details of all national recording schemes visit: www.brc.ac.uk/recording_schemes.asp

Much of the data the BRC collects is made available to view by the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) through their 'NBN Gateway'.

For more information check the NBN web site (www.nbn.org.uk) or the NBN Gateway (www.searchnbn.net).
