Thank you for taking part in NBRC's LOOK OUT FOR… PONDS' SURVEY. Please make sure you record legally and safely.
We are looking for submissions of all known pond locations. Currently this is missing information in Northamptonshire. With your help we aim to gain current information about the distribution, coverage and condition of Northamptonshire’ s ponds. Thanks to the Environment Agency for their support in our development of this, our first, habitat based ‘Look out for…’ survey, we are looking for your data collection submissions via both paper form and/or use of mobile survey tools.
A standard NBRC data search for a given area will provide a map and a report (PDF) including:
- Location of statutory sites that have been designated as; Special Protected Areas (SPAs), Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), National Nature Reserves (NNRs) or Local Nature Reserves (LNRs).
- Location and where available, descriptions of non-statutory sites that have been designated as Local Wildlife Sites (LWS), Protected Wildflower Verges (PWV), Wildlife Trust Nature Reserves, Local Geological Sites (LGS), Pocket Parks, Important Invertebrate Areas (IIA) and Potential Wildlife Sites (PWS).
- Lists of protected and notable species records (including red data book and Biodiversity Action Plan species) with dates and spatial references.
We need your help to find Badgers!
NBRC are hosting the Northamptonshire Badger Group survey.
This group holds records of badger activity across the county, provides advice and organises rescue and rehabilitation. Your help is needed to increase and update their records. As a small community group, they rely on volunteers and members of the public to report badger information. Records of badger activity in the southern half of the county are particlularly needed.
For more information about how you can help and submit your records, please visit our Look out for Badgers survey page.
