NatureSpot works on Indicia, the system that powers iRecord - this is how we handle and store records. We've been informed that this system will be unavailable for periods of time from 5pm Friday 23rd March and will be back and up and running by 5pm Sunday 25th March due to essential maintenance work on the main CEH servers. Bear with us over the weekend and we'll see you on the other side!
