A significant proportion of these species records come from YOU!


Without the contribution of volunteer recorders we wouldn't have the knowledge we have of the Biodiversity of Birmingham and the Black Country and understanding of its natural environment.


Don't forget, it is possible to record wildlife without specialist knowledge, just provide details of who, what, when and where.

All species records are important, no matter how common or widespread.You can submit your records online using our new online recording site RODIS
