I managed a walk round the block yesterday and dug out a few things that I could identify. The highlight, and a nice surprise, was the Water Rail I flushed from the edge of a slightly flooded scrubby area. I've never had one in my square before.
206 - Emmelina monodactyla (Common Plume Moth)
207 - Water Rail
208 - Smooth Newt
209 - Clausilia bidentata (snail)
210 - Lords-and-Ladies
211 - Field Horsetail
212 - Water Slater (Asellus aquaticus)
213 - Lecidella elaeochroma (lichen)
214 - Charlock
