I'll be having a look at the fastest 1000 with an aim to beating that, but I still think it's a long stretch from there to reaching Tim's outrageous 2018 total. The number of species per day required is just out of my reach I think. That'll have to wait for retirement. It's not that I can't catch/gather enough material - I'm sure I can. I think I just have no way of identifying them at that rate. I say this knowing full well that I might be spending December poring over pinned Ichneumonidae!
I know everybody loves a good pyrenomycete so here's the charming Bertia moriformis in all its glory.
Also worth mentioning was the occurrence of #patchgold Whooper Swans which flew over on Saturday morning
