Online Recording

Records can be submitted online at Herts Natural History Society and iRecord. Records submitted online can be used more quickly than those submitted in most other forms. Instructions on how to submit records are available on both web sites and a training guide for iRecord is available here. Please contact us if you require further assistance.
