Online Field Guide: Flora

Use the filters to home in possible candidates for the species you are trying to identify. You DO NOT have to select an option from every filter! The more precise you are the more likely you are to find your species but if any filter option you select is wrong you will miss it. You may need to try several options before you find what you are looking for.

If you know what family your flower belongs to then select it here
You may wish to specify the month in which you saw the species
Choose what you consider to be the dominant colour of the bird you saw; specifying a colour for birds is difficult but you can
You can also have a go at selecting by size
Habitats are useful for breeding or resident birds but migrant species can turn up almost anywhere!
