Anyway after what appears to be another slow start, here are the scores on the doors for NZ2549 - County Durham. I really need the temperatures up, not just for the species count but for my old bones too.
The best was just the other day when a small white Acleris moth in the garden trap turned out after its bits were examined by the county recorder as A.logiana and the first for County Durham (VC66). I've found firsts for the county in the way of birds and flora but after all these years moth trapping this is my first moth.
|Here she is (its a girl) A. logiana|
aka Black-headed Birch Leaffolder Moth or Grey Birch Button
So, I'm on 231 at the moment. This time last time it was only 190 but doing the same square will have the great advantage that I know where a lot of the flora, bryophytes etc are which should give me more time to spend on the family groups I'm rubbish at, ie nearly all of them.
Here's the breakdown
