The content of this website is the work of many dedicated individuals who have contributed hours of their own time freely and willingly over many years.

  • The glory of the photographs speak for themselves.
  • Every dot on every distribution map represents the effort of a recorder in the field who has taken the trouble to submit their sighting.
  • The text has been written by experts from within the ranks of BWARS making use, where possible, of material composed initially for printed atlases.

The website has been constructed on the open-source Drupal platform by BiodiverseIT and is hosted by BRC.

Funding to support this project has come from the lottery-funded OPAL project.
