SP5595ish - 500+

A half decent night with the garden moth traps last night, which did indeed take me over 500 although I've also taken one off whilst I mull over a carabid a bit more (see last post). Otherwise a flowering plant on the way home from work added, but I've left the traps off tonight as I need to get up and out early for work without any hinderence. May has been pretty good for me with 177 species added so far during the month - and there's still ten days left including some time off of work after the bank holiday .....
