I claim my £5.00...

Well, a few good days recording and I'm now on 1411 species. Off to the Brecks today so will be out of the square! Quite pleased how quickly I've got over the 1400 mark considering I was away for a couple of weeks in June. I think the intensity of recording will probably reduce, but I'll keep going, so should end up with a pretty good total by the end of the year. Not too many pictures in this post, but a breakdown of the 1411 total below plus a list of new species.

  1. Congratulations Tim (and commiserations Andy), that's an amazing number of species to see by early July!!! Get yer arse back up here and I'll hand you that fiver...

    So - 2K by October?

  2. I knew my record would fall, well done. I'll be disappointed Tim if you don't make it to 2000 by the end of the year.

  3. Just counting how many groups you have exceeded my life list on in 6 months ...

  4. Very good going Tim. Now see if you can get 1411 for the year in your 0.02 ha!

  5. Thanks all, I think that's £20.00 in total then!

    Pete, I'm on 1051 for my 0.02 hectares so far. I reckon I should get to 1411 OK, possibly 1500+ with a following wind.
