Crowden, Derbyshire 10th July 2019

Thank you to all the recorders who came to this recording day at Crowden, Derbyshire.  This was a joint event with the Sorby Invertebrate Group.

The valley above Crowden, is part of the larger Dark Peak SSSI [view citation], which is also an Special Protection Area and a Special Area for Conservation.  We mostly followed the Crowden Great Brook but also took in parts of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s Brockholes Wood Nature Reserve with upland Oak woodland and a small quarry. The SSSI units covering the areas we explored are all in Favourable or Unfavourable – recovering condition.

Thankfully the weather held out for us and whilst much of the day was cloudy, there were some sunny spells and a high of 20 degrees.

The above images are copyright of: Julia Simons (Photos 1-4) Jane Hewitt (Photos 5, 8 & 9) & Mike Pettipher (Photos 6 & 7)

We’d like to thank the landowners and Natural England for permission to survey the site and the Sorby Invertebrate Group for accompanying us on this visit.

Recorders:  Ralph Atherton, Dave Bentley, Philip Brighton, Christine Blanco, Alex Cropper, Richard Dawson, Steve Garland, Gary Hedges, Jane Hewitt, Belinda Nixie, Mike Pettipher, Julia Simons, Clive Washington, Derek Whitely, Rob Zloch.

A developing species list is given below, with more to be added in the coming weeks and months as recorder identify their specimens. As well as providing us with a list, recorders are asked to formally submit their recorders via their usual channels (iRecord is recommended).
