Butterflies are in trouble. A third of UK species are threatened and three-quarters are in decline. Butterfly recording is the foundation for protecting these beautiful creatures. The iRecord Butterflies app helps you to identify the butterflies that you see, but also uses your sightings to help save butterflies.
Sightings will be stored within the “iRecord” website and passed onto the “Butterflies for the New Millennium” national recording scheme run by the charity Butterfly Conservation, with support from the Biological Records Centre. This long-running scheme has gathered millions of butterfly sightings that provide vital information about how the fortunes of butterflies have changed over the decades. Your sightings will be used to understand the causes of decline and to inform conservation work on the ground to help threatened species.
Scientists could not do this work without the help of people across the UK, like you, reporting when and where they find a species.

Nice app i.e easy to use but it keeps failing to load which is tiresome. Eventually I had reinstalled it in the hope that will sort out the problem
Loved using this till I had to re enter my password. By this time I had changed my e mail address and was not sure which address to use to gain access. It did not matter which of the two addresses I used it told me I was already registered and would not let me in. I emailed for help and received a reply that they would look into it and then never heard from them again
Great App for ID in the field
Strange that some reviews negative as it works perfectly for me with my iPhone even in remote areas. Like the fact you keep a historical record with photos on your phone.
