We are always grateful to receive records from a variety of sources and we encourage people to go out and record. WBRC understands that collecting and recording biological information can be time consuming an often requires a certain level of commitment, and very much appreciates the contributions made to WBRC by recorders.
If you or your biological society collect biological records, you can help to protect our natural heritage by passing information on. All species records are important to WBRC no matter how common or widespread. However with regards to bird species we would request that only breeding bird (or known resident species) records are passed on to WBRC as organisations such as British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) are much better equipped to deal with the potentially large volume of other records with their BirdTrack system.
Further information is encouraged if available e.g. photos, habitat details, the number, sex, age or behaviour of the species observed.
WBRC can help with species ID and if you require assistance then photographs of the species or other relevant evidence e.g. feeding remains, droppings, footprints are nearly always necessary. Please send queries to firstname.lastname@example.org or WBRC office.
