Welcome

This site is still under development and is being created to fulfil a need to allow for online recording of wildlife in our beautiful county of Somerset.
 
No doubt you have come here to enter a species sighting from your local patch or even your garden. If that is the case then click here for a form to enter all the bits and pieces that make that record of your sighting; who, what, where & when.
 
Somerset Environmental Records Centre (SERC) is the centre of reference for information relating to biodiversity and geology in the county. The data we hold on species, habitats and sites across Somerset is provided by recorders, professional ecologists and the public. We make this information available to a wide-range of individuals and organisations for use in nature conservation, development planning, and research.
 
Our Area
We cover the current administrative County of Somerset, which doesn't include the unitary authorities of North Somerset or Bath and North East Somerset. For recording purposes our area lies within both vice-county 5 South Somerset and vice-county 6 North Somerset.
