Other beetle records from National Stag Beetle Surveys 2006-2019
Distribution data for species other than the stag beetle Lucanus cervus collected via the People's Trust for Endangered Species' national stag beetle surveys (Great Stag Hunts).
People's Trust for Endangered Species are the Lead Partner for the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) for the stag beetle in the UK. The national stag beetle surveys (Great Stag Hunts) were undertaken to provide a baseline picture of the distribution of Lucanus cervus as part of the BAP process with follow up surveys to establish any change in distribution in subsequent years.
The majority of the records in this dataset were captured via a public participation online map. While the geographic coverage of the survey was aimed at the whole of the UK, most recorders tended only to submit positive records and these have a southern bias due to the distribution of stag beetles in the UK.
The majority of records were submitted by members of the public. Records were validated by the survey organisers based on photographs submitted as additional evidence.
The dataset was then checked by running it through the NBN record cleaner.
This dataset contains records for non-target species (i.e. non-Stag Beetle records) collected during the national stag beetle surveys (Great Stag Hunts) in 2006 - 2007 and 2015 - 2019. Each record provides the locality and date of observation.
The primary source of the data were records submitted by members of the public, either on-line or via paper forms. The collation of records was undertaken by the survey organisers.
Records pre-2015 were supplied with the postcode of the property where the record originated. Postcodes were converted to grid references by reference to on-line mapping sources such as Streetmap.co.uk and using postcode converter software.
Records post-2015 were captured via a public participation online map. The lat long coordinates generated by the map were then converted to grid references.
Records were validated by the survey organisers based on photographs submitted as additional evidence.
