Look out for Rabbits!

Northants Easter Bunny Hunt

Spring is in the air and we'd like to present you with an Easter challenge by joining in with our Look out for Rabbits! survey.  Although thought to be common and widespread in Northamptonshire, we have relatively few records of rabbits in Northants and there are large areas of the county for which we have no records at all.

Look out for Ponds!

Ponds are a supporting habitat for a wide variety of species, both as a home, a resource and migratory pathway. By enhancing the available knowledge through this survey we inform decision making at landscape scale for species protection.

Standard Data Search

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.

Look out for Bee-flies!

It's nearly bee-fly season again and we'd like to continue with our bee-fly surveys to help map and monitor the distribution of these fascinating flies across the county.  In 2018, the dotted bee-fly was recorded in Northants for the first time and we've now added the option to submit a record of this species as well as your records of the dark-edged bee-fly, so please check out our Look out for Bee-flies survey page to find out how to tell the difference between the two and submit your records for 2021!

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.
