Welcome to the Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre

August species of the month: Silver-spotted Skipper Hesperia comma

Silver-spotted Skipper <i>Hesperia comma</i>

In the 1970s there was a distinct possibility that this heat loving species might become extinct in East Sussex. It was already, at this time completely absent from West Sussex. The only locations it could be seen were a couple of sites on the Downs east of Lewes.

Welcome to the website of the Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre, one of the many local environmental record centres situated around the UK. We provide environmental information services encompassing biodiversity, geodiversity and other aspects of Sussex’s natural capital. We cover the two counties of East and West Sussex, including Brighton & Hove, in South East England. We are a small but dedicated team of environmental data managers, naturalists and IT specialists.

The Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre is managed as a partnership project, hosted by the Sussex Wildlife Trust. Our partners include local planning authorities, government agencies, conservation bodies and other organisations which need access to up-to-date biodiversity information, such as water companies.

Sussex has a vibrant and energetic biological recording community with many independent recording groups and societies. By strengthening relationships with these groups, and the wider network of naturalists, ecologists and recording schemes active in Sussex, the Record Centre facilitates sharing of ever-greater amounts of biodiversity data.
