The Bioblitz identified 569 species in the survey areas of Ashton Court, and unsurprisingly, plants and invertebrates make up the bulk of them. In numerical order, the final count was :
Plants = 194 ; Invertebrates (excluding moths) = 186, with Moths alone = 76 ; Birds = 39 ; Mammals = 15 ;
Mosses = 14 ; Butterflies = 11 ; Fungi = 10 ; Lichens = 8 ; Amphibians = 5 ; Fish = 1 ; Algae/stonewort = 1
This makes 560. The other 9 species are from unassigned taxa in the BRERC database and so more difficult to catagorise.
