Slipping down the league

The more popular this pan-species lark gets, the further down the list I go. If I were a man I would learn all of my mosses, liverworts and lichens, befriend an insect expert, string like hell and haul my sorry ass up into the play-off positions (that's 3rd - 6th for you non-Football types). Fat chance...

2nd: Dave Gibbs (9,506)
3rd: Mark Telfer (6,169)

Perhaps your cat has some interesting fleas or maybe you need to get into bacteria! Just a thought Steve?

There is a flaw in your masterplan Jerry - bacteria don't count! On the other hand, cat's fleas do...
With a wide remit of the whole of the UK, maybe a trip north of the border is a good idea?

You don't really need to travel far to rack up a big pan-species list: Jennifer Owen recorded at least 2,673 species (covering all wildlife groups) in her Leicester garden over a 30-year period!
