Slow dive

So I spent the last few days unwinding all the gains of early in the month and am now back needing >3 spp per day to finish before end of September. That should still be ok, though, and with so few days even one good day will push it back under 3 anyway.

After clocking a larch in the school playground in January I finally scored with Suillus grevillei the day before term started. It's a long time for something you know is coming! My biggest "hole" this month is the moth total I expected and which has been badly damaged by either rain or cold, clear nights. There is still hope, though. Vismig has produced precious little although the expected Tree Pipit finally came up this morning. Should still be a few going past for a couple of weeks anyway. A kingfisher was nice to have though and I saw it/another again this morning.
