The folks from BRERC have continued their sterling efforts in identifying the species collected during the Bioblitz, and this has pushed the recorded number above 600 – to a total of 637!

Plants – 229 ; Invertebrates (excluding moths & butterflies) – 214 ; Moths – 79 ; Butterflies – 11 ; Birds – 40 ; Mammals – 15 ; Amphibians – 5 ; Moss – 13 ; Fungi – 18 ; Lichen – 8 ; Algae/stonewort – 1 ; Slime Mould – 1 ; Liverwort – 2  … and still just the 1 fish…

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.
