The Derbyshire Mammal Atlas Project

Following the well attended launch in March 2013, 'The Mammals of Derbyshire' by Dave Mallon, Debbie Alston and Derek Whiteley, is available to buy.

With almost 200 pages of information, distribution maps and photographs, it is the result of over 4 years of mammal recording and a collation of previous data, with a total of over 85,000 records. The book is a comprehensive account of Derbyshire's mammals (past, present and possible future).

It is available by sending a cheque (payable to Derbyshire Mammal Group) to:
DMG Books, c/o Wyecliffe Cottage, Chapel Hill, Ashover, Derbyshire S45 0AT

Orders may also be taken using either debit or credit card. For more details,

email: or ring Jo on 07824 531468

The price is £12.50 (inclusive of postage)

So far, around 400 copies of DMG's share of the book have been sold.

It is also available from some bookshops and other outlets across the county.

Derbyshire Mammal Group and Sorby Mammal Group launched the project back in the autumn of 2006, at the Mammal Symposium in Calver Village Hall.

The picture to the left shows a reduced size example of the coloured distribution maps that feature in the book.

Please keep sending your records in, as they will still be entered into the database in the forthcoming months and years. New distribution maps will soon be shown on the web site which will show species records from 2011 onwards.
