Sorry,

...just noticed the "Spain". Please ignore my suggestion.

And the sooner iSpot gets the Country filter, the better!

Sorry?

No need to be sorry Rachy. I think you are right. The plant was next to a normal pink/purple Lady Orchid. We saw quite a few Lady Orchids in Spain. Thanks for your suggestion

I agree with Rachy -

a filter for countries other than Great-Britain and Ireland would be a big improvement.

We've asked...

...on the forums (repeatedly!) but haven't had a confirmation yet as to whether this feature (which I consider to be essential) will be in the new version of iSpot which is coming our way soon, they say.

I'm hoping it will be a simple drop-down filter, to select either UK only, or a selection of the country options: and I'm hoping that we will be able to "set" our preferences, so we don't have to do it every time we sign in.

Fingers crossed, eh?!
