Shropshire Mammal Atlas

Atlas logoWelcome to the developing Shropshire Mammal Atlas!

The maps show the distribution of our terrestrial mammals at tetrad [2km2] resolution. Records up to 2018 are included. The bats will be added in due course when available.

Species maps – click on the map image to enlarge. The maps have been produced by the County Mammal Recorder Lorcán Adrain.

Species pages – where the page name is in bold, click on the name to got to its atlas page with an enlarged map and information on the animal and its distribution. Pages for other species will be added as they are written by a variety of our 150 or so members.

Mammal Atlas pages can also be accessed via pull-down menu at the top of each page. If you can’t see the whole sub-menu, click page down. As more species are added, they will be grouped by the name of their order.

You will notice that many of what should be the more common species are severely under-recorded, so please keep sending your records in!
