My Square

The KSQ I'll be attempting to record 1000 species from this year is SW7633, near Penryn in West Cornwall (VC1). This will be especially challenging as I'm only living in Cornwall during university terms.  I'll be spending April and mid-June to mid-September back home in Cambridgeshire!
Here is my square:
The square contains most of a local reservoir and its surrounding woodland area, as well as some surrounding farmland/hedgerows, and some of the village of Mabe Burnthouse. I will be tree beating, sweep netting, pond dipping, log turning, botanising, bryologising, lichenising, birding and hopefully pitfalling and moth trapping!
I'll be getting an up to date species list together in the next few days.

  1. I remember seeing Purple Heron on that lake a good few years back, really nice part of the world. Best of luck for the year ahead, keep us updated :) Seth.
