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

To submit a record and experience this site in full, you must register (free and quick!).
