An absolutely superb and super helpful post from Stevesmailes.

I have learned more than I could possibly have imagined from iSpot and it has cemented and reinvigorated my passion for nature. This is mainly due to the knowledge and helpfulness of people like Steve, along with many others. Thank you, L.


Completely agree, Luisa! Mega helpful post and really well explained for those of us who need it!

Yes a fantastic observation and one that might get a mention in April obs of the month.

Rather remarkable


New user, balteatus has posted observations with good descriptions and also responds to comments, for example: Hoverfly resting on leaf of cranesbill | Observation | UK and Ireland | iSpot Nature
Can anyone help balteatus with this day flying moth: Day-flying micro-moth on Oxeye daisy | Observation | UK and Ireland | iSpot Nature

Watch for SCHOOLS
iSpot is developing new relationships with Schools - I am not certain of the detail
This is not a new entry but suggests WE need to help the process along.

A rare sighting:

As we have come to accept and respect, Steve got ‘down to it’ again. 3 Photos so NOT luck!
