Targeting Revisits Map: Ladybirds

This Targeting Revisits Map shows the 1km squares from which one or more Ladybirds species have been recorded through the UK Ladybird Survey.

The colour of each square shows the status of each site based on existing and new records (records made or submitted in 2022).

Your feedback on these maps is vital. If you have used these maps, please give us feedback for us to continue supporting and improving this tool.

Please note the map may take a while to load the data for the area shown on the map, particulary when the map covers a larger area. To prevent overloading the app there is a limit to the extent map will zoom out. To navigate to a location quickly you can use the search button to search for a place name and then the map will centre on it.


Further information

Researchers at the Biological Records Centre at UKCEH use data from 'well recorded' squares (dark green on the map: with visits in multiple years) to estimate species trends. You can increase the amount of data for this analysis by revisiting squares that have records from only one year in the past – and so to turn the bright pink 'targets for revisit' to dark green, 'well recorded' squares. More information.

Clicking on a square will show a pop-up containing summary statistics for the 1km square.

This Targeting Revisits Map is updated continuously with records submitted to iRecord. Records submitted to the recording scheme via other routes will appear on the Targeting Revisits Map in due course.

All records are valuable, but when recording it is especially valuable to record all the species that you observe during a visit.

These maps are provided for information only. It is always your responsibility to stay safe and legal when recording.
