Thank you for all the comments. I will make sure to read all the FAQs later on. And, I have renamed this spotting with the appropriate identification.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Hi Joh, Welcome to Project Noah! It might be a good thing to read the FAQ's from the start so you know what is allowed and what not.

Very nice first spotting. Keep it up. The idea is that when someone makes a suggestion as to the ID, you research and confirm and then edit your spotting to reflect the correct ID.
