The RSPB is committed to making the species data which it collects available through the National Biodiversity Network (NBN). This should be the first point of call for all RSPB species data.
If the data you require are not yet available through the NBN, or if you require a higher level of access to data on the NBN, we’ll ask you to complete a data request form providing further details of how these data will be used. We will use this information to make a decision about releasing the data at better resolution.
It may not be considered suitable to supply sensitive data at its original resolution, in which case lower resolution data may be supplied. Those who use data for conservation purposes, such as staff of conservation organisations, are given a higher basic level of access to sensitive RSPB data than the general public.
Data sensitivity is determined in line with the guidance developed in consultation with the Rare Breeding Birds Panel for the new Atlas of Breeding Birds.
