Beautiful spotting! I got goosebumps looking at this guy!

Patricia, sorry for the misunderstanding. There was a bit of confusion between the mission being global or not, but it is now fixed! Hopefully the mission will be expanded, and you will once again be able to add this fantastic spotting to the mission.

when I added this to the mission, the mission was called: "Night time animal spotting"
so, it wasn't from Europe....
sorry for the inconvenience.

You may not have this spotting in a European only mission as it is from the Americas and not in Europe. Please remove this and all your other non-European spottings from the European mission.
