SP5595ish - Update

Whilst there are a few pending ID, here's my few recent additions:

Taxon Vernacular Date Added
133 Agriopis marginaria Dotted Border 16/02/2013
132 Entomobrya nivalis (springtail) 15/02/2013
131 Orthotrichum affine Wood Bristle-moss 15/02/2013
130 Physcia tenella (lichen) 15/02/2013
129 Ramalina farinacea (lichen) 15/02/2013
128 Galanthus nivalis Snowdrop 15/02/2013
127 Nectria cinnabarina Coral Spot 15/02/2013
126 Clubiona terrestris (spider) 15/02/2013
125 Tachypodoiulus niger White-legged Snake-millipede 15/02/2013
124 Carduelis spinus Siskin 13/02/2013
123 Gallinula chloropus Moorhen 10/02/2013
122 Turdus philomelos Song Thrush 09/02/2013
121 Agonopterix heracliana (micromoth) 03/02/2013

I'm sure that once the many green shoots start to look like something that even a botanically blind person like me can ID then the list will grow a little ... in the meantime the following shows what I've been looking at:

Bird 51
Vascular Plant 20
Lichen 9
Mollusc 9
Fungi 8
Moss 7
Moth 6
Spider 4
Woodlice 4
Mammal 3
Harvestman 2
Springtail 2
Beetle 1
Bristletail 1
Centipede 1
Earwig 1
Liverwort 1
Millipede 1
Slime Mould 1
Worm 1

Agg. 4

I certainly wasn't expecting to find and ID that many lichens, molluscs, fungi and mosses this quickly.

Bonus Siskin on me nuts.

On the mammal front, there are numerous mole hills including one that has bizarrely popped up between our house wall and the front driveway (I keep getting a cartoon image of it banging it's head for the next 20 meters) and there was also an unexpected Badger carcass on the A426 - shame it's dead but at least it shows that I may get lucky later in the year with that one. In the meantime I'm hoping the carcass gets shuffled over to the verge for later inspection .........
