Key to abundance:

Accidental - five or less records

Very rare - twenty or less records

Rare - less than annual; many years between records

Very scarce - less than annual; typically every 2 or 3 years

Scarce - very small numbers virtually every year

Uncommon - recorded in low numbers each year

Fairly common - occurs in reasonable numbers

Common - regularly occurs in good numbers

Abundant - occurs in large numbers

Key to Status :

UK BAP sp. - UK Biodiversity Action Plan species (published Aug 2007)
