Help record now

If you think you have seen these species now, please submit records by selecting the species in question. If the species is not shown here, then either it may be found at most times of year or it is an unusual time of year to find the species. You can see this from our species surveys page. If your record is from an unusual time of year you should definitely upload a good picture to support the record.

You need to register with us to submit records. Registration allows you to submit records and pictures to our recording schemes and keep track of your records on-line. Please do this even if you only have one record to provide - all records make an important addition to our knowledge of the distribution, phenology and status of species. If you are a member of the Essex Field Club you will also be able to contribute to this website and request greater access to data. If you are not a member, please consider joining.
