Enter results from your FIT Count

The 2023 PoMS recording season ran from 1 April until 30 September. Thanks to everyone who took part in 2023. If you still have counts to add from earlier in the year please do so, but otherwise we look forward to the next FIT Count season starting from 1 April 2024.


Please add the results from your FIT Count for any date between 1 April and 30 September 2023. See all the counts for the current season on the FIT Counts map.

(If you are taking part in the 1 km square surveys and have FIT Count data to enter from your square please use the 1 km square FIT Count form)

This FIT Count is being submitted to the UK PoMS website. If you have a website account, please log in so that this Count appears in your "My records" list. If you are not already registered with UK PoMS we recommend to register so that you can view your previous Counts and use all the site’s facilities. If you have previously sent in FIT Counts via the iRecord website, or registered via the FIT Count app, we recommend that you register with the same email address as before, so that we can link up all your counts on this website.
Alternatively, you can continue without registering by providing your details below. We ask for these in case we need to contact you when checking the data. They will not be used for any other purpose.
Personal details

Please provide your first name

Please provide your surname


Please provide your email. This will only be used to contact you if we require further information to verify the record.

If you are entering several counts you can use the green padlock symbols to 'lock' many of the boxes, so that you only need to enter your choice once - the setting will be remembered when you add your next count

Please add the recorder's name, if it is not already shown, using the format "First name Surname"


Select the date on which you did the count


Provide the name of the site, ideally using one that is recognisable from an OS map. If the location is a private garden, the name of the town or village is sufficient, no need for a full address.


Please provide the a grid reference for your FIT Count location. You can enter the reference directly (above), OR search for a place (below) then click on the map to set it.


If you have chosen "Other habitat type" please give details below.


Please select your target flower from the list, or use "Other" if your chosen flower is not in the list. If you know the exact species you used add the name in the box below.


If you have used a target flower from the main list this will automatically fill in with the type of flower shown in the FIT Count flower guide. If you used a flower that is not on the list please add the flower type that you counted.


Please use 24-hour clock time with a colon in the middle - for example, 2.45 pm should be entered as 14:45. Times should be given as British Summer Time.

Please enter the counts for each species group that visited your target flowers. (For groups that you did NOT see, just leave the box empty, there is no need to record a zero.)

You can add photos to show examples of the insect groups that you saw, but this is OPTIONAL. Where possible we would like to see an example of the insect groups that you have counted, so that we can correct for any counts that may have been misidentified, but you do not need to take insect photos for every count that you do. Please do NOT take photos during the 10-minute count period, as this could disturb the insects and affect the count result. Instead, you could take some photos of the main groups of insects after the actual count is complete.
