2013 In Numbers

by A warbler a day

I’ve gone through my nature diary records for last year and tallied the numbers of species seen. They are as follows;
* Birds – 158 (5 lifetime firsts – Bewick’s Swan, Arctic Skua, Great White Egret, Tree Sparrow, Red-breasted Goose)
* Dragonflies – 23
* Butterflies – 37
* Moths – 187 (32 lifetime firsts)
* Plants – 2 lifetime firsts – Wild Gladiolus, Smaller Catstail)

All in all I’d say it was a very good year.
