City Nature Challenge is an event originating in the USA and in 2018 it is going international. The idea is to collect as many wildlife records as possible from the city and surrounding area over a long weekend (like a huge BioBlitz). iNaturalist is used to collect data from participants opening the event to anyone in the area with a computer or smartphone.
The one I saw for the last long weekend and made me think the location I wanted to go to would be excluded. Don’t know where I saw it. May have been morning TV.
Today we went to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and then home via Regent’s Canal - early flowers included daffs, crocuses, violets and snowdrops. But most of these would have been planted at some time or another, so I think would have been excluded - there were quite a lot of birds. It was more a Facebook outing, not really fit for iSpot even.
And then the weather was most foul on that weekend, so even our dates would be wrong.
I’d say, stay away from Lichens, they are a complete waste of time, no-one ever posts them.
Anyway, I popped in again today, on the way to proper Observations of Marine Algae and found trees, remember those?
Of course, if you find a bird, you will get agreements galore - birds mean agreements, no comments mind!
I’ve really got bogged down tonight - was looking at Gigi’s posts from Cape Point - and now I remember why I never got anywhere with AIZOACEAE.
It’s all about the fruit. Priscilla was always sucking them (the fruit) to see if they opened.
Yes, I believe so and I may have made a mistake. Tagging is an innocent way of bringing posts together for whatever reason.
I don’t think there is anything sinister but I wanted raise the possibility, so I flagged it for miked, though retrospectively I should have raised it privately.
