Pan Species Listing

This year I stated pan listing. For those that don’t know pan listing is keeping a list of all of the living organisms that you have seen in Britain. Some people have pan lists of over 4000. At the moment I am lingering on 871 but this will increase as my knowledge increases. I may even take part in the 1000for1ksq challenge next year in the hope that will open my eyes to new organisms.
