Odonata records from Kent's County Dragonfly Recorders (1976-2005)
Dragonfly and damselfly records administered by the KMBRC, collated and verified by British Dragonfly Society members in Kent. The data comprises of two surveys 1976-1999 and 2000-2005.
Coverage for Kent using a combination of Watsonian Vice County boundaries (VC15 & 16) and the administrative boundary for Kent. The majority of records in this dataset are held at 100m level, some at 1km level, but the dataset will hold some records at 2km, and 10km resolution. Records are provided at the precision in which they were recorded. Coverage is fairly evenly distributed throughout the county, though records are scarce in chalky areas such as the North Downs and Isle of Thanet for example, due to the suitability of the habitat to support species of Odonata.
Observations will be used to contribute to an Atlas of Odonata for Kent.
Records have been collected by a number of volunteers, many of whom already record, and were passed onto Regional Recorders for validation. Data has been entered onto software at the KMBRC and data entry has been audited prior to sending records to the NBN.
The records are made up of species observations made by volunteers and submitted to Kent's Regional Recorders. The records include breeding and abundance information.
