Wondering ...

why a second identification exactly the same as the existing identification was added two hours later.

Please use the "I agree" button, and Comments for any additional notes.

The photographed cowslip, incidentally, is probably of sown origin. The local council has seen fit to supplement the native populations along roadsides with plants that are genetically not the same.

I posted the second identification because....

....I thought it might be helpful to others to confirm that I think that the flower is a Cowslip.
I also thought it might be helpful to others if I supply information such as when it flowers, its habitat, and similar species.

From the wise old owl!

Which is what the "I agree" symbol is for.

Again I point out http://www.ispot.org.uk/help-etiquette

in particular:
"Don't use "Add a revision" to repeat an identification that has already been made (if you want to expand on an existing identification that is best done in the comments for the observation)."

Not one of the greatest annoyances in life, but redundant repeats of identifications do get people's backs up and there has been much debate in the forums.
