A third of a thousand

Two days to go until January closes and on the way to a third of the 1000. An empty moth trap last night (no by-catch) on a cold and breezy evening.

I surpassed last year's millipede tally, which was the highlight of the evening.

One of the things I experienced yesterday was that whereas last year I could turn over most logs and stones on my square in a lunchtime, and I knew where they were, this square has a much greater collection of deadwood and stones both and so there's no way I can cover them all, even in one woodland. Bodes well for the rest of the year. This collection is from Ross Plantation.
