Yorkshire Wildlife Trust - Non-sensitive records from all taxonomic groups
This dataset is part of a pilot project of Yorkshire and Humber Environmental Data Network (YHEDN) to mobilise LRC data and Naturalist data from our region more widely.
The data has been collated into 2 datasets for NBN (Sensitive and non-sensitive species) with the original survey name as an attribute. More detailed meta-data can be obtained for individual surveys on request from the centre.
Currently Sensitive species includes all bats, badgers and all birds of prey. Some data has been excluded altogether from these datasets until such time as we can clarify our authority to distribute it but this can be obtained directly from the trust.
Records largely fall within YWT reserves across the Yorkshire and Humber region. Commissioned survey work can be anywhere in the region.
YWT works as part of the Yorkshire and Humber Environmental Data Network to support local land management decision making and to develop baseline information to support things like Climate Change Action Planning.
Yorkshire and Humber Environmental Data Network is working to develop common practices to assess confidence and to validate and verify data as part of national initiatives looking at the same issues.
Data is validated using NBN Record Cleaner and some records with erroneous grid references corrected. Where necessary and/or possible records are referred for verification to naturalists with appropriate expertise
Data is provided by reserve wardens, events, member's vists and from survey work commissioned by the trust for key species.
