A wizard time was had nonetheless and though I made some efforts to rip off Seth's Rage Against the Marine I barely scratched the surface. I did find the Hildenbrandia, which was pretty widespread, and I have a couple of bits and bobs that I hope will succumb to later perusal, but alas no photos. A couple of pools with abundant Corallina officinalis was rather fetching in the sunlight, and I even managed to rumble up a couple of fish, though a lack of camera made me unable to do so much with them. They all appeared to be the same (as if you can tell!) sort - in the blenny, shanny, goby wide headed sitting up on the sea bed sort of mould and I let the one I managed to catch go after a brief look. I am confident, moderately, that I can catch one another time so no point in harassing the poor thing further. It does make me feel like I was too pessimistic about my ability to record fish in the square.
(edit - not shanny/blenny, which seem to have major dorsal finnage to the fore. Common Goby looks the most likely contender)
(2nd edit. another bloody bee flew past me while I was distracted and escaped ID again)
I also managed to bag another mammal as a grey squirrel shinned up a tree above the shore.
More searching for bristletails produced only slaters and hoppers sadly. I know you're out there!
Anyway, the numbers bit:
|294||Pertusaria pseudocorallina||A lichen|
|295||Sciurus carolinensis||Eastern Grey Squirrel|
|296||Hildenbrandia rubra||An alga|
|297||Corallina officinalis||Coral Weed|
Be nice and tidy to be at 333 by end of Feb
