Update from TM0025 - 17 July 2013

A couple more weeks on and the numbers are still progressing well. I keep wondering where each new tick is to come from, but as you will gather from the list below, the greatest source is the new moth trap, which continues to bring something new and exciting every time I use it. I'm also finding that as the seasons progress, different invertebrates appear, and an amateur like me is also able to identify more plants as they come into flower.
