I have recently become aware of a potential copyright issue with how data is used from this website. To attempt to solve the issue I have purposefully altered some of the recording data that appears on this website. This effects the validity and usefulness of records and means that people who want the correct data have to contact me for it.


As a reminder to them, Cornwall Wildlife Trust are currently banned from storing or using any data owned by David Fenwick, the author. This relates to the current status of wildlife recording in Cornwall, and other factors.

Many independent recorders in Cornwall, like myself, currently use the ERICA database that has been developed by Dr. Colin French. The data is open source, the database installs on a PC and laptop and is an invaluable tool for researchers and recorders in Cornwall. ERICA is in my opinion, the history of biological recording in Cornwall. There is a need for ALL Cornish records to be accessed using this system, which anyone can use under license. I would personally advise any group or individual to use ERICA if they were interested in records and recording, as once the system is updated you can access and export your own and other records without having to request the records from anyone. ERICA also works with the APHOTO websites to provide images of species found in Cornwall to help identify species.

For more information about ERICA or to obtain a copy of the ERICA database e-mail Colin French.
