County Recorders are the main contact for their chosen groups within Huntingdonshire District and Peterborough. They will assist with the identification of specimens and prepare reports on their chosen group. Click on the email address links below.

The Biological Records Centre provides a list of national recording schemes and mobile phone Apps they are involved with.

If you do send records to any of these schemes, including iRecord, NBN or CPERC we would encourage you to let the County Recorder know so that they can access the data relevant for Huntingdonshire VC31. It is not necessary to send the records, just a note that they are available so they can be incorporated into our Annual Reports.
