Mapping Nottinghamshire's invertebrate fauna
 
We are continue to receive numerous records from an increasing number of recorders, for annual inclusion into the Nottinghamshire distribution maps we produce on eakringbirds.com.
......
After several years, many species maps are now taking shape and becoming useful in helping local naturalists research the distribution of species within VC56 (Nottinghamshire). An example map showing how your records can help us map our invertebrates, is the latest map for the Weevil Strophosoma melanogrammum, shown on the right.

Recent updates

The latest update was in February 2017, but due to ill health, we have not had the time to update the Lepidoptera maps.

Notable additions to the distribution maps this time around, include the addition of records from Peter Kirby's Bentinck Tip & Void Invertebrate survey of 2007 and the National Trust's invertebrate records for Clumber Park, which were very kindly supplied to us by Stuart Warrington (the National Trust's wildlife advisor for East England).

Our thanks go to those who continue to support the work we are doing, by sending us their records.

Put more dots on the map - add your records

If you would like to have your records incorporated into the maps, then send them to us as an Excel spreadsheet file. We also accept any records via email.

An example of the correct column formatting, is shown below. Your name will be included in the list of contributors given with each map, but do remember to keep sending all your records to the relevant county recorder. A current list of county recorders, collating Nottinghamshire's invertebrate records, can be found further down this page.

We usually credit records contributed to the species maps, to the individual or organisation (Lound Moth Group, Netherfield Wildlife Group etc) who take the time to send us their records for inclusion. Contributing sources are usually added to this list at the end or start of the current year.
