Topic: Big Bluebell Watch

The metadata for the 'Big Bluebell Watch' dataset (https://registry.nbnatlas.org/public/show/dr1573) says:

The date refers to the date that the record was entered, NOT the date it was seen.

I've checked the various definitions of 'Event date' and although it's not entirely clear, I think most people would assume that the date associated with a record is the date it was seen, not the date it was entered onto a database?

Agreed Charlie - this is surely a ridiculous approach ?

Re: Big Bluebell Watch

I have written to the data provider to ask for more information about the dates,

Just wondering if there was any outcome with this one?
