If this is your first record submission, please read our quick guide to Using the NBRC Website to Submit Biological Records.
Please take care when collecting record evidence (such as photography) that you don't disturb or harm wildlife. In particular 'sensitive' or protected species, such as bats, dormice, badgers and great crested newts, should be recorded at a distance unless you hold the relevant licences for these species. It is preferable to blur your records of sensitive species, so that whilst they are accessible to the record centre they are not publically viewable at high resolution. We advise this step to reduce the risk of environmental harm through public access to this data. Sensitive species lists can be found on the National Biodiversity Network website.
If you would like to submit more than one sighting or plan to submit sightings on a regular basis, please create an account. You will then be able to view, edit and download all your submitted records.
Please note that submitted records don't appear on the My Records and All Records pages straight away. We would advise that you check these pages the following day.
