Recently moved from Warwickshire to South Lincolnshire, so starting off the new garden list, having just topped 1000 at the old place. Up to 161 species in just over three months, including quite a few new ones for my pan-species list.
My bogey species:
Have struggled with dragonflies at times - tried and failed for several over the years, such as Norfolk Hawker, all of the Emeralds, Common Club-tail and White-faced Darter.
My most wanted:
I only have one regular GB breeding butterfly to get - Mountain Ringlet.
Already five new moths from the new garden, one micro (Argyrotaenia ljungiana) and four macros (Yellow Horned, Tawny Pinion, Red Chestnut and Dotted Chestnut - the last was new for Lincolnshire!) Quite a few new beetles from the nearby fen reserves and elsewhere, most notable being Bembidion quadripustulatum and Elaphrus riparius. Other recent additions include Bordered Shieldbug, Green Cellar Slug and Sea Buckthorn.
