Aderyn :: What's in my Area?

Ever wondered what species have been seen near your house, school or workplace? This page allows you to find out!


Using the map, pan and zoom to the location you are interested in. Then simply click once on the map to select the 1km grid square you are interested in. If you wish, you can manually enter the 1km grid square rather than use the map. The format is the 100km grid letter code followed by the four figure reference. E.g. SN1256.

You will then be able to view a summary of species recorded in the 1km grid square (shown in purple on the map) that your location is within. Sensitive species are removed. If you need more detailed information including sensitive species information, please contact us using the information at the bottom of this page.

Enter a 1km grid square (i.e. SN5678) or use the map to select a square.
