Help to record the wildlife of Leicestershire and Rutland

Submit any sighting of an animal, plant or fungus – with or without a photo – to put your dot on our species distribution maps. All records are passed on to local and national recording schemes.  All wildlife records are valuable, common or rare, and whether from your garden, local park or a nature reserve. Help To Record

The latest Leicestershire Entomological Society newsletter is now available to view on the LES page. Also available is a report on the Dung Beetles of Priory Water by Frank Clark and Tony Cook.

The Leicestershire and Rutland Mammal Group is newly formed and aims to promote interest in local mammals and encourage more recording of these animals. To find out more visit the L&R Mammal Group page.

A new mapping tool has been installed on NatureSpot that lets you explore and map all NatureSpot records. By using the filters you can map and list all records for a selected area, just your own records, or select a particular wildlife group. Visit the Explore page from the main menu above.

All records submitted to NatureSpot are checked to confirm the identification and details are correct - called verification. In conjunction with the Biological Records Centre, we are using a new system with five choices. You will see the icons for these in the verification column of your My Records page. See the verification page for more information.
