Help to record the wildlife of Leicestershire and Rutland

Submit any sighting of an animal, plant or fungus seen in Leicestershire or Rutland to put your dot on our species distribution maps. All records are passed on to local and national recording schemes and help add to our scientific knowledge which helps conservation.  All wildlife records are valuable, common or rare, and whether from your garden, local park or a nature reserve. If your wildlife sighting is not in Leicestershire and Rutland, please submit the record to the national iRecord website.

You can now use the NatureSpot App to record in the field with your mobile phone.

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