Back at the end of April, I got MapMate to tell me how many species I'd had in each year up to the end of that month and posted the results here. Essentially to see if the spring was really as good as it appeared. Given the poor summer, I thought it would be interesting to post the figures for my garden up to the end of September (See below). It may have been a poor summer in general, but the little bits of good weather appear to have bolstered species numbers. I've not corrected for recording effort though - I may well have trapped more regularly than previous years! Incidentally my highest year total is only 306, and I'd expect to beat this during this late summer weather!
