September: photographs of the month

Charlotte Armitage , 10/10/2017

The launch of the new website has seen the introduction of a photo uploading tool. It has been great to physically see what people have been recording while they have been out and about for Nature’s Calendar.

Not only have your photos been a pleasure to see in our office but they also allow scientists to more accurately verify your data.

A big thankyou for all your records over September regardless of whether or not you uploaded photos. Every record helps scientists discover more about the natural world’s response to climate change.
