Welcome to the new website!

Thank you for your patience while we've been redeveloping the site.

I really hope you like the improvements:

  • You can use the website on mobiles and tablets so that you can record when you're out and about. I've been out recording rowan first ripe fruit already!
  • You can add photos and comments to your records and I look forward to sharing some of the best photos in a blog soon.
  • You can view your records instantly on our live maps and compare your records to others around the UK.

You'll notice some differences

Adding a record

  • You'll need to register on the new website before you can add any records. Register with the email address that was your username for the old website so that you can see your previous years' records when you're signed in. 
  • Please add your records as soon as you can after you see each event.
  • As well as entering an observation date, you’ll need to let us know the last time you visited the location before making your observation. We understand that it’s not always possible to check your recording location as regularly as you might like, so this will give an indication of how accurate your observation date is. 

Let us know how regularly you visit your location

You can view your locations on a map

Locations

  • The recording location area has changed from a 6 mile radius to a 20 metre radius.
  • You can plot and view your locations on a map.
  • You can set up multiple locations for example ‘my garden’, ‘the pond in the park’ and 'the ash tree by the bus stop’.

Seasons

  • You can record continuously throughout the year rather than only during ‘spring’ and ‘autumn’. This is because we know that events like snowdrop first flowering and oak bare tree often span the seasons.

Nature's Calendar blog

I’ll keep you up to date with the latest project news in the Nature's Calendar blog.

If you have any questions, or need some help getting used to the new website please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I hope you enjoy the new recording experience and add your first records soon.
