General Recording Information
If you would like to become one of the hundreds of people who regularly send
data to DERC, or if you have an exciting find you would like to report, the
following notes should help.
All records must include the following information:
- Your (or the recorder’s) name
- contact address
- grid reference (where possible to 6 figs). OS maps include information on
how to read the grid reference
- location name – or a description of the location if you cannot provide a
- species name
In addition any comments on the flowering stage, number of plants, habitat,
age class and if the species was seen, heard, caught in a moth trap, found dead
etc. are all useful.
