iSpot is a website aimed at helping anyone identify anything in nature. People upload their observations of wildlife, help each other identify it, and share and discuss what they’ve seen.
A good place to start is to look at some of the latest observations – you can see what people are observing right now. Anyone can see what’s on the site without registering – just go back to the home page, and click on the photos for the latest observations.
We would love for you to make use of the site yourself, by showing your own observations, or commenting on other people’s and helping them to identify what they’ve found.
To do this you’ll need to register on the site – this is totally free, and does not commit you to anything.
Then the next thing to do is to get outside and make some observations. You need to note down what you’ve seen, where you’ve seen it, and when you saw it. If you can take a digital photograph of it that is very helpful, and allows others to share what you’ve seen.
Then upload your observation. Click Add an observation, fill in the form, and you’re away!
