I had intended to pick up a few species I know are in the intertidal and relatively easy, but when I got there I found the tide as high as it can possibly be (at which point my square is 1/2 submerged!). Still the gathered seaweeds did at least give up Vertebrata lanosa.
I stuck with the maxim, "The easiest way to find new species is to look in new places" and walked the coastline, quickly picking up Weld and Red Dead-nettle where the grass runs out and becomes sand/rock. A happy find was more Spotted Medick, so it's at both ends of my current square.
The only species I took to the lens in the evening was the lovely Cryptosphaeria eunomia. A nice side-effect of finding this one is that it nudges me into the top ten for fungi on the PSL charts - a spot I've been eyeing for some time!
