Welcome to the forum!

Please sign up and join in. If you have submitted a sighting to the website in the past, you should automatically receive your login details in the next days.

We have just substantially updated the website (March 2012) - have a look under the Recording menu - there is a new "Survey Form" with a clickable map to log observations, and two "Reports" to view recent sightings by species and by area.

We hope you like the website - please post any feedback or questions here, or email them to orthoptera@ceh.ac.uk.

And please record any observations of grasshoppers & allies of course! They will be included in the new Atlas - which we are planning to publish in 2013.

We are looking for additional "county recorders" to promote and coordinate recording of Orthoptera and allies in each county. If you are interested and there isn't a county recorder in your county already please get in touch!

A big thank you is due to Biren Rathod and Jim Bacon of the Biological Records Centre for creating this website.

Finally a big thank you to everyone who has already submitted records, and apologies for delays in processing - we hope from now on processing will be very prompt.

Peter Sutton, Bjorn Beckmann & Dave Chesmore
