Away last weekend in all the snow but chipping away since then and pleased to have identified more bryophytes, a couple of snails and a couple of bugs. Additions have been:

141 Hebrew Character in the trap (6 March)
142 Kindbergia praelonga (identified from back in Feb, common feather-moss)
143 Rustyback Asplenium ceterach on the wall by the church with lots of wall-rue
144 Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata leaves
145 Dotted Border in the trap
146 Depressaria daucella in the trap (only had 1-2 before)
147 Gastrodes abietum a ground-bug on the open back door near the trap (to light?)

148 Forsythia x intermedia on the verge of the coast road not near gardens
149 Stock Dove 3 over the garden (13 March)
150 Siskin 2 to N over the allotment
151 Procumbent Pearlwort weed in someone's garden planters, in F
152 Common Ragwort (rosettes in the lawn)
153 Tortula muralis (suitably on the wall by the church, wall screw-moss)
154 White-lipped Snail Cepaea hortensis
155 Smooth Glass-snail Aegopinella nitidula (both in the garden, this under leaf litter and much trickier to be sure of)
156 Yellow Corydalis Pseudofumaria lutea (wall near church)
157 Columbine Aquilegia vulgaris (garden escape along path near the church)
158 Gorse Ulex europaea in flower near old railway (which is hard to get at, annoyingly)
159 Hawthorn Shieldbug Acanthosoma haemorroidale (minding its own business hibernating til I removed its barky shelter)
160 Common Frog - at last, on the nth check of the pond.
