Still Minding The Gaps

We need your help filling the gaps in our records. More...

With more than 350,000 verified records on NatureSpot, it is perhaps surprising that we still have some gaps in our coverage of Leicestershire and Rutland. You can see from the map that there are five squares not coloured blue, meaning that we have not had a single verified record from these areas (tetrads SK30J, SK30R, SK80J, SK81L, SP89G). For the most part, these are agricultural areas and don't have any houses in them. Access may be limited - possibly only road verges. However, they're not far away from people (we're looking at you, residents of Oakham and Market Bosworth!), or anyone who fancies helping us fill in these remaining voids. You can look at all the records from your area in detail by going to the Explore all records page via the top menu on NatureSpot. Please help us plug the gaps!
