Cullaloe LNR, Fife - 400 up

So Cullaloe did indeed deliver 400 species before January's end. Remarkable. 61 new species added to the reserve list, which needs to be reviewed because I think there are actually more species recorded than are in the total list. That's going to be tedious and time-consuming though.

My first nocturnal visit on Friday night was precipitated by 10 degree weather, and I was rewarded with a couple of moffs on top of the spiders and slugs I actually went to find. I have I think 3 things in hand to potentially add but probably this will be more-or-less the January total.

Gratifying to add two worm species, which is two more than I ever intended.

February may be a bit quiet since I've recorded pretty much everything I know already!
