I have been a recorder on iRecord for a number of years now, but am getting a little confused about where to record.
I have found iSpot very useful in identification and often used it. iNatiuralist too is very helpful with regard to ID. NBN is a mine of information when looking up where and when species are to be found and checking your own records against what others have recorded over the years.
Forgive me if I've got the wrong end of the stick , it now seems all this sites are pooling records. If this is the case surely it must lead to an awful amount of duplication.
How as a mere amatuer naturalist do I deal with this situation. I don't want to duplicate what is recorded as this would probably cause problems and give false information for future users of the records submitted.
