The National Biological Data Centre (NBDC) was delighted to award the Distinguished Recorder Award 2013 to Angus for his recording and documenting of Ireland’s biological diversity, particularly, but not exclusively, of moths.

The NBDC is dedicated to the collation, management, and analysis of data and information on Ireland’s biological diversity. One of the Centre’s priorities is to promote and encourage biological recording in Ireland.

In its simplest form a biological record tells us where a species occurs and the date on which it was observed.   There are currently over 6,000 recorders in Ireland who have contributed records to the Centre either directly or through various recording scheme or organisations.
