iRecord Records to 18th August 2018

The casual recording on iRecord for 2018 so far to 18/08/2018.
Number of Records 22,219 - Number of Recorders 481 - Number of Species 39
Area Coverage – we would expect at least 20 species in each 10 Km square so squares with less than that number is not being covered adequately. The attached chart shows that some squares have over 30 species and others less that 10.
Some squares have over 2000 records and others none. It would be helpful if recorders could cover some of these under recorded squares.
Facebook Records:
Please note that putting records on Facebook does not help with Branch Recording the records must be entered onto iRecord or UKBMS system for us to analyse and conserve butterflies.
So good records are being entered onto Facebook BUT they never find their way onto our systems.
