The Derbyshire Bat Conservation Group runs a data request service, available to commercial and non-commercial users.
Our database holds over 11 thousand records for the whole of Derbyshire although there are some squares which do not yet have bat records, usually because they have not yet been surveyed.
To submit a data request to our recorder, please fill in the form below. Please note that this service is run by volunteers in their spare time and therefore there may be a slight delay in a response.
