This data set provides valuable information on the distribution of a European Protected Species, the great crested newt. This data set has been used to inform activities related to District Level Licensing and the release of the data set increases transparency of this new licensing scheme.
This is a presence only dataset given the difficulties in validating true absences for great crested newts. Records were removed if they had incomplete 6 figure OS grid references or where the 6 figure OS grid reference did not fall within the boundaries of the reported Administrative Area.
Class licence surveys for great crested newts were undertaken by hand, nets, torches and aquatic funnel traps (including bottle traps) but excluding the use of pitfall traps and box traps.
