Targeting Revisits

Wondering where to go on a day out? Here's an idea. More...

NBN (the people behind iRecord) have updated a tool which is designed to show where records are lacking. In Leicestershire and Rutland we know where records have come from but the NBN maps show details for five groups: Grasshoppers and bushcrickets, Craneflies, Ground beetles, Soldierflies and Ladybirds. Green 1km grid squares are "well recorded" (with records from more than one year) and pink squares that are "targets for revisits" (with records from only one year in the past). Can you visit squares in your area and make records, and turn the pink squares green?
