Started out as a birder, started doing moths in 1999, became more interested in general stuff and compiled my initial PSL list in 2011 (1983 species). Main current interests are entomology and inverts generally rather than green stuff.
My bogey species:
No bogeys, as in species I've tried many times to see but failed. Lots of species I should of seen had I ever made the effort: Leach's Petrel, Roseate Tern and Ortolan Bunting included! Lots of common butterflies and dragonflies to see.
Used to be Oriental Pratincole, Marmora's Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Crag Martin, Short-toed Eagle, Siberian Thrush, White's Thrush - all fallen in recent years. Still clinging on to Steller's Eider, Grey-tailed Tattler and maybe Snowy Egret. Main moth highlight is Herpetogramma licarsisalis. Monarch butterfly and Risso's Dolphin on Scillies. Hard to have many grippers when you are a PSL low-lister!
