If you haven’t already discovered it, it’s time to hook up with #SpeciesADay from the National Biodiversity Data Centre. Each weekday and each weekend, the good folks at the National Biodiversity Data Centre designate a different species as #SpeciesADay. This weekend (13th/14th June) it’s the foxglove. Your mission is to get outside, find some foxgloves, take a photo, and tweet it with the hashtag #SpeciesADay. For bonus points, submit your sighting to the National Biodiversity Data Centre. Just go to their Start Recording pages: Start Recording
Click on Vascular Plants for this weekend’s species, and enter your data and upload your photo. You can record any of your sightings of any species, at any time, and help build a picture of Ireland’s biodiversity. Why not explore some of the other recording schemes while you’re on the National Biodiversity Data Centre website?
