You don't need to have a Gatekeeper account to submit your butterfly and day-flying moth records, you can go right ahead and submit your sightings using the recording form below.
However... with a Gatekeeper account, all records you submit while you are logged in to Gatekeeper will be available in your Gatekeeper page. You can edit and delete records that are awaiting verification and view all of your verified records in one place. Even better... you won't need to enter your name and email address each time you submit a record either! Plus, you will also have access to additional features and resources as we develop them.
Please avoid including the word 'Garden' in your location name when submitting a garden record.
Instructions: Click and drag the red marker to your sighting location to generate a six figure (100m2) grid reference which will appear just below the map above. Use the + (plus) and - (minus) buttons to zoom in and out. Zoom in to see the selected (100m2) grid square. Then enter the grid reference generated in to the 'Six figure OS Grid Reference' field below.Note: Please ensure your sighting location is within the green square where the red marker is located. You may need to zoom in to see the 100m grid square.
