As with many others it's been the moth trap that's been most productive and even giving me a couple of new ones for the garden including Ipimorpha subtusa (Olive) and Mompha raschkiella
Having said that I am most pleased with the butterflies, having got everything I expected for in the square and after a fair bit of searching adding both White-letter and Purple Hairstreak to the 1ksq list. I knew they were both lurking somewhere, but to get 22 species in my square I'm really delighted and it's all thanks to this little challenge, which is a joy.
I'm also way past my expected bird list (by ten!) including a fly-over Yellow Wagtail yesterday which I thought I had dipped on as a bird in the spring did a U-turn meters away from the boundary. But not this one.
So it's the final straight and with me not back to work till next week and bit of effort I should not have to rely too much on bryophytes & fungi in the late autumn.
