A County Dragonfly Recorder (CDR) is a skilled volunteer who oversees the collation, validation and verification of records for their chosen area or Vice-County. Any records entered online are sent automatically to the appropriate CDR for checking.
- If you are interested in learning more about dragonflies, recording or events in your local area please get in touch with your CDR.
- More about Vice-Counties
In common with many other recording schemes, BDS Recording divides the country into Watsonian Vice-Counties. These were devised in 1852 and do not change over time, as modern county boundaries are redrawn by government to cope with changes in demography. The naming of the Vice-Counties (VCs for short) is archaic. The greatest discrepancies between the two systems is seen in Wales.
An map of the VCs of Britain can be found on the BRC website.
To find out to which VC(s) an OSGB grid square belongs, type or paste the grid reference into the Search box of the Cucaera Grid Reference Plotter page.
