My last post weirdly linked to one at the end of 2009 musing about large county year lists. I stated then that my Angus records were way ahead of any others, but not no more. Last year bust that one right open.
For this country at least. Santa Clara back in 2001 still holds pride of place with 191 species. God, I can only just manage that in the entire UK for a year! although last year I did beat my all-time English record with 192 species. So it seems that Santa Clara county and England are about equivalent. 1,300 square miles the former; over 50,000 the latter. I wanna go back!
