TG3208 statistics ...

I thought others might like to see the breakdown of my 1000:

The small number of lepidoptera is due to my foolish refusal to use a moth trap, though I lost my nerve when I saw the huge numbers clocked up by others in July and I did pop round to Ben in the next street and dip into his trap on a couple of mornings. The surprises for me were the number of vascular plants, and Hemiptera which I had never really tackled before; the biggest disappointments were the vertebrates with just 12 mammals, herptiles and fish combined - so far. Up to 1019 now and as long as the weather holds up I am still hunting.
