Firstly I must apologise for the lack of blog posts lately. I am coming to the end of my degree and as you can imagine things have been rather hectic. I have broken up for easter now and although I have shed loads of revision to do, I hope to balance this with finding some wildlife. That brings me to the subject of this blog post. I keep a list of all the species that I have seen and have recently recorded my 1000th species. I would have never imagined a couple of years ago that I would ever record 1000 species in Britain and the great thing is there are many many thousands more species to find and record. All my sightings I add to iRecord where they can be verified by experts and used for a variety of purposes to track population trends and changes in distributions of species.
My 1000 species span a wide range of taxonomic groups as you can see here:
Till then I wish you all a wildlife filled spring,
