Lack of admin

Had a few issues with this blog when trying to update it but it looks like I've found a work around to stop it hanging.
Spring is in full swing now so the Admin and paper (or on-line) work has taken a bit of a back seat at the moment. I'll try and catch up but it will have to wait until I return from Greece. I forgot how much time doing this listing takes.

In the meantime here is a list of the new species recorded this year in the monad ie NZ2549, together with a few pictures I've got to hand. The first on this list, Emperor moth, was my first on the fell for three years. But another moth enthusiast brought a female over and it attracted several males. I couldn't get there that day but I looked around myself the following day and saw several flying around, low over the heather. Maybe that sexy female hads woken all the lazy boys up!

The list consists of  a few moths (its uusally quiet for them now until the end of the month) and other inverebtrates, a few mammals and lots of flowers now that they are beginning to show themselves and I haven't got to id them vegetatively. I made a bit of an effort on the latter so that when I get back I can concentrate on some of the other stuff. And I'll update the sidebar lists too.
Heres a few random pictures and the list in no particular order.
