I expect most iSpot users are aware of this already, but just in case you aren't, the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch is back, this coming weekend (28/29 January). For full details see:
If you see anything you don't recognise, put the photo and/or description up on iSpot, and if you're lucky enough to see a bird you haven't seen before, let us know by tagging it "New to me" - see our Discover New Life project:

UPDATE at 12 December 2011: the vast majority of the missing images have now been restored. However, if you find that an image is still missing from any of your observations please contact us and let us know which observation has been affected.
Original message at 3 November 2011:
We are having some technical problems following an update today. At the moment observations uploaded before the update show only one of the images associated with them. Please do not worry about this. The other images will be restored.

- making it clearer that photos of nesting birds and roosting bats should not be uploaded on iSpot
- making it clearer that the details of wildlife observations on iSpot may be passed on to recording schemes and environmental records centres

Although there haven't been any major changes to the appearance of the iSpot website recently, our technical developers (principally Richard Greenwood) have been busy behind the scenes.

- "I have been made aware of the rich resource of information on-line and projects/surveys needing support. My specialist area was plants in about an acre of, possibly, old meadow. The routine of regular identification resulted in a record of more species than my casual observation registered which was exciting and rewarding. Receiving feed-back on iSpot was helpful too."

The iSpot reputation system is doing a good job of helping iSpot users understand what degree of confidence can be placed on the identifications suggested, and in highlighting the Likely ID for each observation. And people seem to enjoy adding to their own reputation score through helping others identify the wildlife they have seen.
