Ticked

I'd say so - see mine http://www.ispotnature.org/node/433377
Until yesterday I'd never heard of it. Good ol' iSpot then.

Seasonal

Goodness, what does one have to do to get agreements? Post Chaffinches!
This is the season for Dasineura urticae. I have recently found galls on the nettle flowers and I hope they may NOT be D.urticae. On the case.

I am trying to get all UK plant gall postings in one place

see

http://www.ispotnature.org/projects/plant-galls

This will hopefully increase the "visibility" to people interested in plant galls and increase identifcation/confirmation rates

There are currently over 550 records collected

Could you please tag any plant gall records "plant gall" or "plant gall causer" - without speech marks

Thanks in anticipation - apologies if you get multiple requests as I am trawling through past records.

If you feel reasonably confident in your id why not go to "other observations and confirm them - Following Derek's advice - if you go here to get to the next record for the same species just go to the top left and click next
