Get the Sighting that appears daily on the Resighting homepage. The date is specified in the url, e.g. /api/1/dailysightings/2013/08/14.

If the specified date does not correspond to a valid date then an invalid_date error is returned. If no daily Sighting exists for a valid date then a method_not_found (404) error is returned.

Sightings chosen as daily Sightings are always publicly-visible Sightings (i.e. they are not on-hold), but it is possible that a public Sighting is a resighting of a Sighting that is on-hold. In that case, the original Sighting is only returned in the Sighting object if the owner of the access token is the owner of the original Sighting.


HTTP Method: GET


Name Type Mandatory Description
access_token String(32) Yes A valid access token.


Returns a Sighting object and HTTP status 200, or an Error object and HTTP status 4xx or 5xx.
