I recorded and photographed a Speckled Wood in my garden. It was verified and subsequently quarantined as I was told “Never seen in area before. Photo please?”  What’s going on. I have recorded hundreds of times. And I have many Speckled Woods in my garden. I live in Southampton. They are common. And I supplied the photo.

I'm not sure what you mean by verified and quarantined? The system sometimes generates automated messages that might include text that says something like this record might be out of area or out of season, so I suspect that is all that has happened here. If so is not produced by a human verifier so just ignore it, when the verifier sees the record and the photo they will accept the record.
