Casual records for Scottish Wildlife Trust reserves - Unassessed data
This dataset comprises ad hoc species records submitted by the public to Scottish Wildlife Trust for Trust reserves. Records in this dataset are for species which at the time of upload cannot be verified using the NBN Record Cleaner as verification rules for the given species are currently unavailable.
The majority of this data will be from 2000 onwards, as this more recent data has been the focus of efforts to digitise Scottish Wildlife Trust records. In some cases however, there will be data from as far back as 1964 when the Trust was created, or even earlier where records were passed over with the land.
The records will largely be restricted to Scottish Wildlife Trust reserves. There may be biases in the data towards reserves with higher levels of public use. Some of the records will be collected with 6-10 figure grid references, whilst others may have been recorded at the reserve level only - where this was the case, a central grid reference for the reserve was used.
Species records submitted by the public, collated to add to knowledge of Scottish Wildlife Trust reserves.
The records included in this dataset are largely from unknown individuals and are therefore generally of unknown reliability. This data has not been verified using the NBN Record Cleaner as verification rules for these species are currently unavailable. Much of this data has been digitised from paper records with a validation procedure in place and so should reflect the original records.
This dataset collates records submitted to Scottish Wildlife Trust by the public. The majority of the data will likely comprise incidental records from visits to Scottish Wildlife Trust reserves, but data collection methods will vary due to the nature of the data. Records in this dataset are unverified and are largely of unknown reliability.

This data is provided "as is" and Scottish Wildlife Trust do not have the resources to interpret this data. The Trust would recommend using a Local Record Centre for interpretation purposes and to gain a clear picture of all datasets available, many of which will not yet be on the NBN Atlas.
Access to records for species considered sensitive by Scottish Natural Heritage is restricted for the following reason: Some of the information held within this dataset relates to species that are vulnerable to human disturbance or prejudice. At this time the data provider believes that full disclosure to the public would lead to environmental harm. This sensitive information may be made available (through taxon based regional datasets) under licence to specific organisations and individuals that need to know to avoid harm to the environment.
