Scientific name

Rather than putting 'undefined', press 'Get recommended' after putting in the common name, and iSpot will fill in the scientific name for you. Then, we can agree with you, and you get all the credit! :)

I'm not sure about getting the credit for pressing a button which does it all for me - but I will try again next time (I did try, but it didn't give me the full name, so I got confused)

Confusion

Because you entered 'long-tailed tits', in the plural, it may have suggested a single family name. Even if you see more than one of a species, it is best to enter the singular name. Remember that the scientific name is the important part; it is what gives the sighting authority. As you are on the Neighbourhood Nature course, I assume that is important to you.
