iSpot is a website aimed at helping anyone identify anything in nature.
Once you have registered, you can add a photo to the website, and see if anyone else can identify it for you. The website is run by the Open University (OU) and they are asking people to put up at least one species new to them before April. The idea is in collaboration with BBC Radio 4 series ‘ Saving Species’.
Visit iSpot.org.uk to find out more, and to take part in the ‘New to Me’ challenge.
