To aid users of mobile devices as well as those with a mouse or laptop finger pad this site uses a simple image-based menu system. Virtually every picture you see (images and photos) are links to more information arranged in a sort of top-down structure. See an image, click or tap on it to open a new page.

These are the sites for which there are records in the database:

Click on any site name to see details of the sites with photographs, a full list of sightings as well as a distribution map. If you are looking for a particular site you can use the search box at the top of the display to enter the name of that site. Primary sites I have visited and have a lot of detail available for them, secondary sites I have not visited so there is less detail and recording areas are much broader and have little specific information.
