The garden of earthly delights

Still adding new species pretty regularly, a combination of new species (mainly from the garden) and stuff from the freezer. My garden list for the year has now reached 1606, not bad for an area that is 0.02% of the 1 km square. The best sighting away from the garden has been a couple of Tundra Bean Geese, although I've been slightly disappointed not to get Rough-legged Buzzard in the square so far as there has been up to four in adjacent parts of the Horsey area.

  1. Outstanding, Tim. I've been pottering about a bit but not adding a lot. I'll post my meagre efforts shortly

  2. Amazing. It will be truly interesting to see exactly where you can get to by years end.
