Use our online recording forms to submit your data.

The information requested is as follows:

Moth Records

Please submit records of adults taken at night only. Daytime and non-adult records are not required.

  • Recorder and determiner name (if different).
  • Site name and at least a six-figure Ordnance Survey grid reference i.e. SY855831, where possible.
  • Local weather conditions.
  • Number and type of moth-traps used (and details of any other recording techniques).
  • How long the traps were operated.
  • A full list of species identified and, where possible, numbers of each species. However, even a simple species list is still valuable. It would be useful if recorders drew attention to records of significant county interest i.e. new VC record, second VC record, first VC record since 1895 etc.
  • Numbers of common, scarce and rare migrants encountered.

Bat Records

  • Recorder name.
  • Site name and at least a six-figure Ordnance Survey grid reference, where possible.
  • Local weather conditions.
  • A full list of species identified.
  • Details of how you made the identification i.e. equipment used, previous experience, visual clues, etc.
  • Details of any nearby bat roosts, if known.

Event organisers (in addition to information above)
