Cullaloe LNR, Fife - performance review: "exceeds expectations"

Cullaloe LNR from the hill above, over lots of Salix to slightly beyond those pines:

As it was when it all began in the 90s - I wish I'd seen it then!

The rip-roaring start to 2019 continues with quite a few additions over and above the "things that I knew were there and I'm just visiting them and writing them down" class of species. Amazingly the reserve had no annelids so I steeled myself and keyed one out, I think correctly. Until a grown-up redets it at least. Reserve list stands just shy of 1700, which would be a nice barrier to break. Hopefully the 1800 barrier will go this year too!



Lumbricus rubellus (hopefully)
